Accessing Samba Shares from Windows 7 RC1


I had a problem accessing our FreeNAS box this morning (as did fellow colleagues) after updating to RC1. The fix is quick, and restored access immediately (no reboot required)

 

  1. Fire up “Secpol.msc”
  2. Expand "Local Policies" and select "Security Options"
  3. Locate "Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication Level" in the list and double-click it.
  4. Change the setting from "Send NTMLv2 response only" to "Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session if negotiated"
  5. Network Security: Minimum session security for NTLM SSP Based (including secure RPC) Clients
  6. Change the setting from "require 128 bit" to unchecked (No Minimum) and Click OK
