Just moved to win2003 Active Directory.  I need windows 95 machines to be able to map a drive to a database server (running Windows 2003) so they can access it.  XP's have no problems.  I think SMB , digitally signed communication is involved.  I have set the; MS network server: disabled signed... (always) to disabled, was enabled in the local security policy on the database server.

I tried mapping the drive in a login script but it hangs the script.

Thanks,

Hello, you don't have to set it in the local security policy, but in the Default Domain controller Policy

Open Users and Computers active directory
Select the OU Domain Controllers / Rigth Click / Select Properties / Policy and Modifiy The Default Domain controller Policy.

And the exact policy you have to look for IS : "MS Network Server, Always sign ... ", and as you tried, have it set to : Disabled
To update the policy settings on the server, you can just launch the "gpupdate" command in an MSDOS box. It hould not be necessary in this case, but it's better to be sure
