PAN_agent NETBIOS Probing

Hello, from DOCs on teh Palo Alto site is not clear for me what NETBIOS probing on the PAN_Agent 3.0 does ?

Since the login is checked on DC reading security log messages, what is the purpose of the NETBIOS probing ? How does it work exactly ?

There is a brief description of the NetBIOS probing in the User Identification Tech Note. You can find it here: https://support.paloaltonetworks.com/index.php?option=com_pan&task=tech_docs&Itemid=141.

Is the "User Identification with PAN-OS 2.1" document still accurate for PAN-OS 3.0 and 3.1? Or are there any updates for these OSes?

The document is still accurate but there have been some enhancements introduced in 3.1. Information can be found at the links below:
