This might be more of a pure AD question than SharePoint but we have an issue with duplicated NetBios names and wonder if AD FS might be a solution.
Our SharePoint Farm sites in a domain called company.com and we have AD trusts with other domains which work fine. However we would like to trust some other domains but cannot do so because of a clash of NetBios names - i.e. the other domains are called company.fr and company.de - so all three domains have the same NetBios name.
I'm wondering whether AD FS might be a solution around this issue but have also heard that AD FS also requires unique NetBios names.
Does anyone have any experience of using AD FS with SharePoint?

there is a property NetBIOSDomainNamesEnabled which needs to be enabled as by default the value of this property is set to 'False'. To enable this, run below mentioned PowerShell commands -
This will output every service application specifically the User Profile Service Application as I can assume that you need to configure UPA for which you need these NetBIOS name to be working.
2. $var=get-spserviceapplication -identity <GUID>
Here <GUID> refer to the GUID you will get by running step 1.
If this is true then it is enabled else follow further steps.
4. $var.NetBIOSDomainNamesEnabled = 'True'
here you are setting the property to True
This is simply running to confirm the result as 'true'.
Once this is done, you need to make a new sync connection as the existing one will not work. So make a new sync connection for UPA and run the job.
