NethServer Version: NethServer release 7.6.1810 (final)
Module: File Server
I have a question related to Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 compatibility related to accessing file shares.
I recently set up a new Nethserver in a small office environment that will soon replace the Windows Server 2003 and I need it and a couple of Windows XP hosts to connect to file shares that I set up on the new Nethserver. These hosts are on the same subnet as the new Nethserver and they are NOT joined to the Nethserver domain. I can successfully connect to the shares this same way with Win10 hosts, but though I can see the shares, the XP and Server 2003 hosts fail every time with the same exact credentials.
Before anyone goes down the road of telling me how horrible it is to have XP and Server 2003 still running in a production environment, trust me…I know. We are working to retire/replace them as soon as we can, however, one of the steps in the process of migration from these legacy systems is our connecting to the Nethserver file shares.
So, how can I make the newest version of Nethserver compatible with these legacy systems?
I appreciate any help you all can provide.
