Buffalo TeraStation Pro cant be mapped to Windows Servers

I am trying to map a buffalo terastation pro to a windows 2003 server and getting a message that  says "The drive could not be mapped because no network was found." I can do this ok on the same network using windows 2000 pro or xp pro. It seems the problem is only with servers.

SMB signing?

Don't know much about the Buffalo Storage devices, but with Windows 2003, anytime you have a weird network problem when your older machines can connect, but your 2003 cannot... I look at SMB Signing as the most likely cause.

try this.
WARNING: SMB signing is a security feature and by disabling it you may leave
yourself vunerible to certain security risks.
1. Open the Default Domain Controllers Policy.
2. Open the Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local
Policies\Security Options folder.
3. Locate the Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications
(always) policy setting, and then select Do Not Configure.

I will look up the MS Article on SMB real quick...help ya out.
