Dear Experts,

We have just replaced our Windows 2003 server with a Windows 2008 Server.  We have 3 Macs (OSX 10.4) which were previously able to access mapped drives on the server, however we are no longer able to login and access the drives from any of the Macs.

Can someone offer any assitance/advice

Thanks

To correct this issue,  go to "Start" ->"Administrative Tools" -> "Domain Controller Policy" (not Domain Policy) and look for "Security Settings" -> "Local Policies" -> "Security Options" -> "Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (always)". It should show "Enabled" by default. Double-click on it and set to "Disabled". Then close the app and reboot the server. When it comes back up, the Macs should connect without difficulty.

^^ the above should correct the issue, it makes the domain 'slightly' less secure, but it should resolve your issue.
