Pardon my simple questsions on this topic - with a full Windows 2003
Windows 2003 forest level infrastructure, is browsing accomplished via
location records, or is some level of RPC still required? Does the
master election process become eliminated if NetBIOS over TCP/IP is
disabled and only
DNS is utilized?
I may be confusing a few protocols and technologies here since
I have not had much experience with WINS and Browse master procotols
since I have
primarily been involved with the UNIX side of things and only have
on the UNIX side from early Samba implementations.I do understand that
addresses simplistic name resolution on a dynamic and static basis like
WINS servers can co-ordinate name resolution between segments unlike
I am also talking about Domain environment instead of a Workgroup
so there may be a difference there in who handles WINS as well as Browsing.
