Does Windows 95 work with Windows 2003 server??

Is it true that you cannot have Windows 95  (and Windows NT 4.0 with SP3 or earlier) on Windows Server 2003 domains?

I have heard that this is to do with security requirements...does anyone know what these security requirements are?

I believe that these legacy systems use LM Hashes for authentication..  MS turned up the security on W2K3 and the No LM Hash is turned on be default..  But this can easily be turned off via the ADUC and Group Policy...   So, I think the answer is, yes you can use these legacy systems in a W2K3 domain..

ON that note, you should be thinking of upgrading your clients..  There is no security in these legacy boxes..  (but you probably already know this, right..?)

BTW:   One thing you may want to consider, is that you will need WINS installed to help with resource name resolution on this network...  Just a thought..

Just to add -
You may want to use ms DSclient to allow connectivity to the 2003 Domain.

This link should have all the info you need on DSClient:

Two four day weeks back to back is always good, espescially if it doesn't come out of my holiday allocation.

As to visiting Oz; wait until your currency is strong against the Oz Dollar and come over and live like a King!

Worked for me on the first couple of visits, sadly I don't get paid in pounds any more :-(
