Clients show "wrong" netbios domain name

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm running SCCM 2012 SP1 and have run into something strange recently where ALL (if not most..) clients, users, and users groups in one particular child domain are recently showing up in the SCCM Console with the "wrong" NetBios Domain Name.


Here's the scenario:


FQDN: CI.boston.ma.us

Netbios: Boston


Originally, clients would show up as being in the "BOSTON" domain, but as of late, they are showing up as "CI" - I find that if i force a heart beat discovery on those clients, it fixes the issue, temporarily (couple weeks). Security Groups and Users used to show up as "Boston\User1" but now they show up as "CI\User1" - I find that with users and security groups, deleting them from SCCM and running a full discovery solves the problem. This behavior happens only in this child domain...nowhere else...




Any ideas?
