CIFS Shares Issue


I have a FAS2554 running 8.3P1 Cluster Mode and am runing into the following problem.


Whenever I try to modify permissions on sub folders in Windows Explorer, I get the following error:


The program cannot open the required dialog box because it cannot determine whether the computer named "IPADDRESS" is joined to a domain. Close this message and try again.


Then a second box pops up:


Unable to display the user selection dialog. The remote procedure call failed.


We are running Server 2012R2, have already ran through CIFS Setup and it is seeing our kerberos, ms_ldap, ms_dc and showing our FQDN.


Has anyone else seen this before?
