Windows 2003 access CIFS share folder

We have some legacy software on Windows 2003 server unable to go higher.
Made a share on 2070 cluster with local user access to it and all anonimous blocked.
When windows 10 / 2019 tries get in - no problems. Security logs get NTLMv2 auth.
With Windows 2003, logs show guest authentication attempt that fails.


When I try to get in parent \\\ - authentication goes as planned with local netApp credentials.

<Data Name="TargetUserIsLocal">true</Data>

<Data Name="TargetDomainName">5NETAPP-SVMSH</Data>

<Data Name="AuthenticationPackageName">NTLM_V2</Data>

After that on clicking a folder and etnering credentials - error on "wrong password\user" and guest attemts in log.

<Data Name="IpPort">1090</Data>

<Data Name="TargetUserSid">S-1-0-0</Data>

<Data Name="TargetUserName">Guest</Data>

<Data Name="TargetDomainName">NoDomain</Data>

<Data Name="Status">0xc0000001</Data>

<Data Name="FailureReason">%%2313</Data>

<Data Name="FailureReasonString">The requested operation was unsuccessful</Data>

<Data Name="AuthenticationPackageName">NONE</Data>

<Data Name="LogonType">3</Data>

UPD:  SMBv1 is enabled


Re: Windows 2003 access CIFS share folder

Windows 2003 supports SMB v 1.0 only, so I'd check the cluster to see if you have SMB 1.0 enabled.


Re: Windows 2003 access CIFS share folder

It is enabled and checked.

Re: Windows 2003 access CIFS share folder

What user is "nodoby"?


    Map Null User to Windows User or Group: nodoby


I'm guessing that was a fat finger/typo.


This link covers configuring the NULL user for access:




Re: Windows 2003 access CIFS share folder

Changed that, thanks. Still no go



Re: Windows 2003 access CIFS share folder

Did you also set up the name mapping rules as per the doc link?


What do you see in "event log show"?


Re: Windows 2003 access CIFS share folder

Actually no, as there's no anonimous login option. Only authenticatred users.



Re: Windows 2003 access CIFS share folder

You may want to open up a support ticket for this, then.


Re: Windows 2003 access CIFS share folder

I wish I could. The system allways tells me to contact a reseller instead of creating a case.


Re: Windows 2003 access CIFS share folder

Hi DiVRa,


As @parisi mentioned, you must create a Windows to UNIX name-mapping rule for the "nodoby" user that the NULL/Anonymous user is being mapped. The "nodoby" Windows user must now be mapped to a UNIX user specified in ONTAP or you can use one of the default users called "pcuser". 


Command to create a local UNIX user:

::> vserver services name-service unix-user create -vserver vserver_name -user user_name -id integer -primary-gid integer -full-name full_name


Here is a reference document on creating a local Unix user:

Here is a KB you can follow that addresses the allowing NULL user access:
