2008 SBS domain security settings

We have a 2008 SBS domain environment that includes multiple OS/2 IBM machines. We are trying to make a smb connections to windows shares located on the 2008 SBS server itself and some others on domain PC's running XP from the OS/2 machines. We are able to see the shares but are not able to connect to them using multiple variations of username and passwords. We have modified the local security policy on the SBS 2008 server so that it does not require digitally signed communications with clients, and we have made sure that the local firewalls are not affecting communication. With these changed we are still not able to connect OS/2 machines to windows shares. Any ideas would help as this is something that worked with an older Windows 2000 server.

Thanks.

You are attempting to map a drive across different platform. Try the following on your command:
net view \\windows2008servername

If it sees the map drive, we look in permission. If not, you may need to get in the W 2008 server NIC's property. Under Advanced and WINS tab, enable Netbios over TCP/IP.

The platform in which we were working with is not compatible with 2008. That is the answer. We would need a third party tool to make the connection.
