Netbios Scanning

I want to check to see if netbios scanning is enabled on my grid. I suspect not as when I run nbtstat I see all workstations are resolved by broadcast. What's the best way to check and enable.

The best way to check is to perform a packet capture while doing a release/renew, then checking the trace to see if the netbios info is passed back to the workstation. The workstation will request options 44, 46 and 47 as part of the netbios check. As I suspected, the function is not enabled on our appliance. Easiest way in our environment to enable is to setup custom DHCP options adding options 44, 46 and 47 to each subnet.
