mac's long file names on a windows 2003 server
Posted on 2009-07-14
One of our customers is running a windows 2003 server which has file server for mac installed on it. They have been using this for a while, but the new mac's they have bought keep getting errors when trying to save files to the mac-share.
I've already read plenty about this issue and it seems that the old mac's use AFP and the new one's SMB.
But how on earth do I activate SMB on my windows 2003 server?
I've already changed the configuration of the file server for macintosh, to enable authentication in "Apple Clear Text", which has made the situation slitly better, but not ideal.
