I want to change a policy in domain controller security policy, I want to disable "Microsoft network server: digitally sign communications (always)." What can be affected by this change?
In detail i need to do the following->
your server is also a Domain Controller. In which case you need to open the DC's Security Policy (Administrative Tools > Domain Controller Security Policy). Navigate to Local Policies > Secuiry Options, and disable "Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (always)" & "Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (if client agrees)". Reboot your sever, and you should be good to go.
The reason i am doing this is because i am not able to access shared folders in my mac client that is on a windows server 2003 domain. If there is any other method or else if there is any issue in changing the above settings please let me know.
