It is normal functionality for the ADS to try to resolve NETBIOS / WINS and DNS names for any ip address received from the AMD and saved in its database. But DNS is the preferred method. So if you have it well set / configured in your corporate network, you can disable NETBIOS / WINS in order to stop this traffic (TCP port 137) from ADS. Follow these steps:
#WINS_RESOLVER_TASK.1 = winsTask_ItiClientIP
#winsTask_ItiClientIP.NEW_ID_NAME = winsId
#adlex.iti.resolver.WinsNameResolver.DEL_NOT_USED_IP_ON_START = true
3. Start the ADS service
Note: Please refer from ADS install manual: It advises to disable all NETBIOS network components and services from ADS NICs.
For CAS related article look at How to disable NETBIOS / WINS traffic from CAS 12.x
So I was under the impression that both CAS and ADS used the same "engine" and would be subjected to using Netbios if it existed during the installation.
I was also thinking about the CSS and possibly the EP/BSM but then again, they are from another code base
We have followed the same link .. Traffic has now not going out with 137 port , instead it is going out with port 80 and doing reverse dns lookup.
Can anyone one help us here..
please go to http://CAS_IP/DiagConsole#/diag/ and execute:
At this point CAS shouldn't use wins anymore.
Let me know if this helps.
Hi @Tahir G.
The file location for CAS is "c:\Program
Files\Dynatrace\CAS\config\nameresolver-rtmbs.properties" and you'd have
to comment out following lines:
NAME_RESOLVER.3 = wins
wins.CLASS = adlex.iti.resolver.WinsNameResolver
wins.RERESOLVE = 7
wins.TRANSACTION_SIZE = 10
Let me know if that works.
