I am studying from Configuring Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure (our environment still has significant Windows 2008 R2 servers), and one question asks
You are working on a Windows Server 2008 R2 computer named WS08A. You cannot connect to computers running Windows XP on the local network by specifying them by name in a UNC path such as \computer1.
What can you do to enable your computer to connect to these computers by specifying them in a UNC?
The choices are
Enable IPv6 on WS08A.
Enable NetBIOS on WS08A.
Enable Local Link Multicast Name Resolution (LLMNR) on WS08A.
Disable IPv6 on WS08A.
I believe the correct choice is
Enable Local Link Multicast Name Resolution (LLMNR) on WS08A. because it replaces NetBIOS. However, the textbook says
Enable NetBIOS on WS08A is the answer.
When I researched this, I read somewhere that using LLMRN to connect to a 32bit machine will take longer than if you use NetBIOS, but this connection is still possible.
If this is the case, why can't they re-write the question to ask,
"Which is the faster way to connect to Windows XP by specifying them in a UNC?"
Or is there something else I am missing?
