I'm messing around with win8 on my pc and am having odd problems getting cifs to work. Current setup (that's relevant)
3140 7.3.2p2 (local DCs - 2003, 2008)
2050 7.3.7 (local DCs - 2003, 2008r2)
cifs to the 2050 works fine. cifs to the 3140 gives me the error "an unexpected error occured". All the options cifs are the same on both. That is:
The "Microsoft Network Client" security settings are at their default, ie, "digitally sign if agreed" is enabled. All the others are disabled. Now, if i set "MS network client:Digitally sign always " to ENABLE. I can access the 3140. I don't understand why, surely that should fail as I have signing off.
A cifs.trace_login implies that I am being authenticated, it appears to loop a few times saying I'm authenticated and then gives me the error. Assuming "AUTH: Login by xxx from 126.96.36.199 accepted" means everything is ok.
