I dont need any communication between the floors but communication is required within the floor and also to a DMZ server from all the pc’s. Because of this duplicate names issue, randomly “Computer Browser” & “Server” services stops on these systems as a result the communication among these systems within the floors also stops responding. I need a solution, however withount any change in the network (vlan, routing). Can I isolate these systems (between the floors) such as disabling netbios/wins etc?
