which cifs Netbios Alias was used to establish connection


I use Ontap 8.0.1.P2 in 7-mode.

some cifs netbios aliases are defined and resolved by dns

how do i find out, which netbios alias is used by any client?

all commands i know show only the ip address, which of course is the same for every alias on the physical machine.

thanks in advance to any suggestions.0
