Make sure that the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service is started on all computers

 

As taken from KB 887303

 

All computers on the network must run the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service.

To verify that the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service is running on a Windows XP-based computer, follow these steps:

1.      Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

2.      If Control Panel is in Category View, click Switch to Classic View.

3.      Double-click Administrative Tools.

4.      Double-click Services.

5.      In the Services list, click TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper. Verify that the value under the Status column is Started. Verify that the value under the Startup Type column is Automatic. If the Status or the Startup Type values are not correct, follow these steps:

a.      Right-click TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper, and then click Properties.

b.      In the Startup type list, click Automatic.

c.       In the Service status area, if the service is not started, click Start.

d.      Click OK.

To verify that the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service is running on a Windows Server 2003-based computer, follow these steps:

1.      Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Services.

2.      In the Services list, click TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper. Verify that the value under the Status column is Started. Verify that the value under the Startup Type column is Automatic. If the Status or the Startup Type values are not correct, follow these steps:

a.      Right-click TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper, and then click Properties.

b.      In the Startup type list, click Automatic.

c.       In the Service status area, if the service is not started, click Start.

d.      Click OK.

To verify that the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service is running on a Windows 2000-based computer, follow these steps:

1.      Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Services.

2.      In the Services list, click TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper Service. Verify that the value under the Status column is Started. Verify that the value under the Startup Type column is Automatic. If the Status or the Startup Type values are not correct, follow these steps:

a.      Right-click TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper Service, and then click Properties.

b.      In the Startup type list, click Automatic.

c.       In the Service status area, if the service is not started, click Start.

d.      Click OK.

Additionally, make sure that you have not disabled one or more of the required system services by using Group Policy objects. View these policy settings by using the Group Policy Object Editor in the "Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/System Services" folder.

On Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP, you can use the Resultant Set of Policy MMC snap-in (Rsop.msc) to check all applied policy settings that are applied to a computer. To do this, click Start, click Run, type rsop.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.

On Windows 2000, use the Gpresult.exe command-line tool to examine the Group Policy results. To do this, follow these steps:

1.      Install Gpresult.exe from the Windows 2000 Resource Kit. 

Alternatively, to download Gpresult.exe, visit the following Microsoft "Gpresult.exe: Group Policy Results" Web site:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927229

2.      At a command prompt, type gpresult /scope computer, and then press ENTER.

3.      In the Applied Group Policy Objects section of the output, note the Group Policy objects that are applied to the computer account.

4.      Compare the Group Policy objects that are applied to the computer account with the SMB signing policy settings on the domain controller for these Group Policy objects.

Note If the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service is disabled on many desktops, you can use the following sample Microsoft Visual Basic script to start the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service on all computers in an organizational unit (OU) at the same time.

i = 0

Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://OU=Computers, OU=OUName, OU=OUName, DC=OUName,

DC=OUName,DC=CompanyName,

DC=com")

objOU.Filter = Array("Computer")

For Each objComputer In objOU

        objDictionary.Add i, objComputer.CN

        i = i + 1

Next

For Each objItem In objDictionary

        strComputer = objDictionary.Item(objItem)

        Set objWMIService =

GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer &

"\root\cimv2")

 

        Set colServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery _

                ("Select * from Win32_Service where Name = 'LmHosts'")

        For Each objService In colServices

                If objService.StartMode = "Disabled" Then

                        objService.Change( , , , , "Automatic")

                End If
