This section provides information about configuring the Solaris SMB server as a client to the WINS service. For information about configuring other applicable services, see Configuring the Solaris SMB Server - Process Overview.
If you are integrating a Solaris SMB server in an environment that has a WINS server, you can use Windows Internet Naming Service (WINS) for name resolution.
For information about excluding IP addresses from WINS resolution, see Excluding IP Addresses From WINS Name Resolution in the Solaris SMB Service Troubleshooting wiki.
For more information, see How to Obtain Administrative Rights in System Administration Guide: Security Services.
The primary WINS server is the server consulted first for NetBIOS name resolution.
# sharectl set -p wins_server_1=IP-address smb
If the primary WINS server does not respond, the system consults the secondary WINS server to perform NetBIOS name resolution.
# sharectl set -p wins_server_2=IP-address smb
