  • WS 's - IPs or names

    Hi There;

    We've recently migrated to WIN2K3 AD from NT4/WIN2K - since then, when in Hyena and you go to a server and display "sessions", most workstations are displayed with the IP address (NetbiosSMB) instead of the workstation name (Netbt_if4).
    All WS's are DHCP clients from one DHCP server. I'd prefer having them displayed as names. Is there a setting in Hyena for this, or is this a DNS or WINS issue?

    This is due to a change in the operating system when you upgraded. Unfortunately, Microsoft does not publish information on where this data comes from so I doubt there is anything you can do to fix it. Hyena just displays the information returned from Windows. I think that Netbios may be missing from your new configuration and perhaps that supplied the name.
