Citrix PVS 6.1 – Could not resolve NETBIOS DNS names from provisioned VM’s, only FQDN

Software: PVS 6.1, Win2k8

Description: Client found that he could not resolve NETBIOS (Short DNS) names from provisioned VM’s via Citrix Provisioning Server 6.1 — Only FQDN’s.

Resolution: Found that the binding order of the NICs on the PVS Target did not have the streaming network as the top network. Moved it up to top position, and it resolved the issue immediately. Found out from talking with network gurus that this is common TCP/IP best practice, although I could not find a CTX Article documenting this.
