This monitor tests the NetBIOS over TCP/IP name resolution in Microsoft Windows environments. The monitor tries to retrieve a NetBIOS name for the IP address of the interface. Name services for NetBIOS in Microsoft Windows are provided on port 137/UDP or 137/TCP.
The service uses the IP address of the interface where the monitor is assigned. The service is up for the given IP address if a NetBIOS name is registered and can be resolved.
For troubleshooting, refer to the use of the Microsoft Windows command line tool
nbtstat or on Linux
|Microsoft has deprecated the use of NetBIOS. Since Windows Server 2000, DNS is used as the default name resolution.|
