How can i deal with duplicate netbios names

Recommended Posts

I am managing clients using PKI over HTTPS. the problem i am facing is that some clients although on seperate domains or workgroups may have the same netbios(hostname). because of this they fight for a space within SCCM admin console, and invariably do not appear.

 

e.g

CLIENT1 - netbios name (DOMAIN)

CLIENT2 - netbios name (DOMAIN)

 

both are completly different (GUID, MAC, IP, DOMAIN or WORKGROUP) but have problems co-existing.

 

what is the solution? i cannot rename the hosts, and why cannot they co-exist if all other data is different...

It is not support to have two PC with the same NetBIOS name within CM12. Your only option is to rename this PCs to have a unique NetBIOS Name.

OK, although that doesn't make sense because i have for example (EXCHANGE), 4 instances appearing under "All Systems" all with different GUID, IP, MAC, SID, ID etc.. except Name. along with this i have (DOMAIN, SHARE) which appear more than once. The setup is purely over HTTPS (internet).
