8.2 cDOTcluster and WINS / NBNS

Anyone know how to completely disable WINS registration from an 8.2 cluster?  I have left the WINS addresses empty, but it still appears to be sending broadcasts out all interfaces.

    You might be able to do this via a firewall policy blocking port 137, which is the WINS name traffic port:

     

    http://www.iss.net/security_center/advice/Services/Directory/WINS/default.htm

     

    To block it, first create the service:

     

    ::>  firewall policy service create -service WINS -protocol tcp/udp -port 137

     

    ::> firewall policy service show -service WINS

      (system services firewall policy service show)

     

    Service Name: WINS

        Protocol: tcp/udp

           Ports: 137

     

    Then, apply the service to the data LIF:

     

    ::> firewall policy modify -policy data -service WINS -action deny -ip-list 0.0.0.0/0

     

    Then see if that takes care of the broadcast... If you're seeing the broadcast on other ports, then do the same for those.
