Windows Home Premium won't connect to Linux Samba or 2008 std server

I have a windows 7 64-bit home premium laptop.
I also have a domain with a few servers.
The laptop will connect to the 2003 SBS, the 2003 std server and the 2008 storage server, but NOT to the Linux (samba) server (Red Hat) NOR to the 2008 std server.
Windows home premium can't join a domain, but that hasn't been a problem with XP and Vista laptops in the past.

Only the Pro / Business Edition of windows can connect to a domain.
It simply makes no sense to have a domain at home.

Tolomir
Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Local Security Policy

Local Policies - Security Options

Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
Send LM & NTLM responses

Minimum session security for NTLM SSP

GPedit.msc is also only for the pro version - sorry.

but try this:


Use regedit and edit the following:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Lsa
and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Lsa

under those 2 keys, add the following Value (or modify it if it already exists)

Type : 32-bit DWORD Value
Name : LmCompatibilityLevel
Value: 1

then your Windows 7 will communicate with SAMBA or previous versions of Windows Share without problem.

I vaguely remember a similar solution to a similar issue with Vista.

Thanks
