NBTSTAT

NBTSTAT is another tool for troubleshooting Net BIOS name resolution issues. In particular, if you’re having difficulty reaching a Windows File Sharing share name, there might be a problem with its NetBIOS name resolution. For example, the desired WINS server might not be accessible, or the WINS server may not be correctly resolving a name. This command can also be used to add or remove Net BIOS entries. To use NBTSAT, type NBTSAT using the appropriate switches at the Command Prompt.

The following example shows once again to use the “/?” after the utility name to get the switch list and purpose.

Figure 44: NBTSTAT /?

 


NBTSTAT Command

Knowledge of the switches on the NBTstat command is expected for the Network+ exam.

NBTstat –a lists remote machines by name

NBTstat –A
lists remote machines by Address

NBTstat –r lists names resolved by broadcast and WINS

NBTstat –R purges and Reloads the remote name table

NOTICE THAT CAPITAL AND LOWER CASE SWITCHES DO DIFFERENT THINGS!
