SMB stopped working on windows 2003 server. Macs and scanners using SMB fail to connect
Posted on 2007-08-06
Hello all, I am completely stumped on this one.
I have a domain that is running two windows 2003 SP 2 servers and both servers are domain controllers.
Server1 is the primary windows 2003 small business server and server 2 is windows 2003 enterprise and is used as a file server and a BES server. Server2 has File Server for Macintosh installed and started.
I setup Mac users with a shared folder 2 months ago and it has worked fine until Friday Afternoon at 1:45 PM. The Mac users connect by smb://servername/sharename, they enter their user info domain name username = domainname/user, and password.
all of a sudden on Friday no users could connect to the server via SMB. This includes Mac's and scanners that connect with SMB.
I went through all the documentation for connecting macs to a share, I have disabled "digitally signed communication" on all the servers.
I can still connect to the server shares with a PC. I can ping the server from the Macs, I can resolve the server name from the Macs, I also enabled audits on the folders to pickup errors.
on the server I get an error 529 unknown username or bad password.
Hope someone else has seen this same issue
Thanks so much
