Cannot resolve netbios name locally

Check the network properties of the workstation where the problem is happening. The workstation is probably not configured properly to use DHCP. Depending upon the workstation operating system, the options are different, but just be sure that the TCP/IP protocol properties are set to use DHCP (does NOT have a static IP address assigned) and that there are no WINS or DNS server IP address settings on the workstation itself. Once this is done, release the IP settings on the workstation (ipconfig /release) and then reboot. The workstation should now connect properly with the DHCP server and get the settings from there. Hope this helps!
