  • NETBIOS required to be enabled on Media Agent
    Posted: 07-07-2020, 9:26 PM

    I have discovered that my Media Agent servers all have the Default NETBIOS set to Default, when running a security scan this is always highlighted and I am asked if it can be disabled.

    Does the Media Agents require the NETBIOS setting to remain active on the MA servers or can I safely disable it.

    Hi TPStorage 

    As long as disabling NETBIOS does not have any impact to the network stack, it should be safe to disable this on the MediaAgent.
