Customer is running av Win 2003 server as domain controller in a small LAN (less than 10 users). Recently they installed a multi-function printer and attached it to the LAN. This unit is configured to scan to a specified folder on the server.
In order for this to work, the printer supplier defined two registry settings on the server:
HKLM/System/CurrentControlSet/Services/lanmanserver/requiresecuritysignature value = 0
HKLM/System/CurrentControlSet/Services/lanmanserver/enablesecurityseignature value = 0
These settings seems to work for a short time, but then they are reset or changed to a value of 1 (which causes the scanner to stop working).
I'm not sure what these settings are doing, but suspect that they're used to get access to the server (without defining a specific user/password). Questions are then: What is causing these settings to change?. Any ideas how to make this work better?
Network Monitoring is essential to ensure that computer systems and network devices are running. Use PRTG to monitor LANs, servers, websites, applications and devices, bandwidth, virtual environments, remote systems, IoT, and many more. PRTG is easy to set up & use.
Organizations create, modify, and maintain huge amounts of data to help their businesses earn money and generally function. Typically every network user within an organization has a bit of disk space to store in process items and personal files.
