How to Find Your Domains DNS & NETBIOS Name


Welcome to this quick tutorial on finding
your domains’ DNS and NETBIOS name. On a Windows server with Active Directory
Domain Services or Remote Server Administration Tools installed, open your Start menu and
select Run. In the input box, type dsa.msc and hit OK. You should now be looking at your Active Directory
Users and Computers configuration window. Right-click your domain in the left pane and
choose the Properties menu item. Your domain’s full DNS name is the first
name listed in the General tab. Your domain’s NetBIOS name is the pre-Windows
2000 entry in the same tab. Within Lansweeper, the domain’s DNS and Netbios
names are required to configure some of the available scanning targets, such as Active
Directory Domain scanning. This agentless, fully automated scanning target
is suitable for scanning Windows computers that are part of an Active Directory domain. Additionally, You can configure a preferred
domain controller for each domain using the DNS and Netbios name, which increases Lansweeper’s
scanning performance across your IT-network. You can find more information below to help
you set up Lansweeper and discover everything it has to offer. Check out these videos or subscribe to our
