UNC Path Name Resolution???
I was on another forum helping someone with a technical issue where they could ping a server by name but couldn't get to the UNC path \\servername. Someone else who was trying to help them was pointing them toward DNS. I told them they need to look at netbios as UNC paths used netbios for name resolution. They responded that DNS was used first and then netbios. Well I didn't argue with them because I could very well be wrong. It has happened once or twice on rare occasion. But I tried to google the right answer to confirm what I was being told and still have yet to figure it out. Does anyone know how exactly UNC paths are resolved and if DNS is involved at all? Any relevant links would be great. Thanks!
