Configuring the WINS Service

This section provides information about configuring the SMB server as a client to the WINS service. For information about configuring other applicable services, see Configuring the SMB Server - Process Overview.

How to Configure WINS

If you are integrating an 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 SMB Service Troubleshooting wiki.

  1. Become an administrator, obtain the solaris.smf.value.shares and solaris.smf.manage.shares RBAC authorizations, or use the SMB Management RBAC profile.

    For more information, see How to Obtain Administrative Rights in Oracle Solaris Administration: Security Services.

  2. Specify the IP address of the primary WINS server.

    The primary WINS server is the server consulted first for NetBIOS name resolution.

    # sharectl set -p wins_server_1=IP-address smb
  3. (Optional) Specify the IP address of the secondary WINS server.

    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
