I need a way to Identify a windows SBS server, I have a script that mounts a file share on a SBS server, I need the script to positivity identify the server before mounting. It doesn't need to be secure,
My setup is like this :
My machine is on 192.168.5.17, the server is on 192.168.0.3, Because were on different subnets I cannot simply check the arp table for the machines mac address.
running Nmap against the server reveals these open ports
Starting Nmap 6.00 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2012-08-01 09:01 BST Nmap scan report for host.somewhere.local (192.168.0.3) Host is up (0.12s latency). Not shown: 979 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 21/tcp open ftp 80/tcp open http 119/tcp open nntp 135/tcp open msrpc 139/tcp open netbios-ssn 443/tcp open https 445/tcp open microsoft-ds 563/tcp open snews 1025/tcp open NFS-or-IIS 2002/tcp open globe 2301/tcp open compaqdiag 2381/tcp open compaq-https 2910/tcp open tdaccess 3389/tcp open ms-wbt-server 4443/tcp open pharos 6129/tcp open unknown 8192/tcp open sophos 8193/tcp open sophos 8194/tcp open sophos 9000/tcp open cslistener 10000/tcp open snet-sensor-mgmt Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 20.70 seconds
The Nmap results show
Nmap scan report for host.somewhere.local (192.168.0.3)
How did it reslove the name i've tried dig and host but cannot get the name from the IP
The machine runs https can I somwhow check the cert from a bash script? Or is their another way to check the host is actually who I expect it to be?
