OS X El Capitan NETBIOS name problem in 10.11.4 is fixed in 10.11.5

leave a comment »

After applying the OS X 10.11.4 update via the App Store to my Mac Mini I found that it was no longer identifying itself on the network with its NETBIOS name.

I tried a few things to fix this but nothing resolved the problem. I came to the conclusion that the update had broken NETBIOS support and decided that the best course of action was to wait for the next version update and hope that it would be fixed.

I’ve just applied the combo update for 10.11.5 and, thankfully, as soon as the Mac Mini restarted it is now identifying itself via its NETBIOS name again.
