Connecting Windows 7 Pro computers to a 10.6 Standalone server

I am trying to connect a Windows 7 computer via SMB to a Mac OS X 10.6 server.

If I attempt to connect with an administrator account (on the OS X server) it connects just fine. Standard user accounts however continue to ask for the password over and over again.

So my user account on the server allows a connection, but a non-admin user can't connect at all.

Any ideas?

Could it be that access to SMB service is restricted to Administrator accounts on the server?

To check (and maybe correct) that:
- In Server Admin, choose the server and click the Access-tab. (See attached screenshot below.)
- Then click the SMB service and make sure the users and/or groups that you want to give access to the service are present in the right pane.
(Use + to add users/groups.)

Best regards

Thanks ACSA. Worked on this server so long, I was missing something stupidly obvious.
