Samba and a Windows 2003 domain

Posted by Paul Farrow - Under: Mini-ITX

If you were getting permission denied while mounting a w2k3 share onto a linux box then here is a suggestion to get around that

• On the Win2K3 server select Domain Controller Security Policy from the Administrative Tools menu
• Navigate to Local Policies|Security Options
• Disable “Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (always)”
• Since FC2 you will also need to disable “Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (if client agrees)”
• You can wait for the policy to propagate or run gpupdate from a command line
