Accessing a XFS share from Windows 7 Pro...
Posted on 2011-09-08
I have a Windows 2003 AD network.
99% of my clients are XP Pro -I am just getting into Win 7 Pro.
I have two "Buffalo" Brand NAS boxes that run an XFS file system; I am told it is some version of Samba, but I am not sure.
The Buffalo boxes are AD aware, and integrate with AD to allow me to use user and group accounts for access control on the NAS.
I had some issues with all my machines and permissions on these NAS boxes. Once these issues were solved, the only machines I have left that are ahving issues are my two Win 7 machines.
Basically, my login script connects my clients to several network locations; three connections are all to the same Buffalo box, connecting to three different shares.
The script stops at the line for the Buffalo NAS, and says the user name or password is incorrect, allowing me to type in in manually.
In short, the only option that works is if the NAS is set to share with no access control set at all... Otherwise, I get a prompt to insert a password, non of which seems to do any good.
How can I access this NAS data from this new fangled Windows 7 thing...
Thanks in advance
