windows XP file share access stopped working after disabling SMB2 on SBS 2008 SP2
Posted on 2011-10-18
A software vendor recommended we disable SMB2 on our windows 2008 server to resolve an application problem. After disabling SMB2 on the server and the windows 7 PCs and rebooting a few times the windows xp computer can no longer access the file shares. I have tried enabling SMB2 on the server and windows 7 work stations again, rebooting many times, repairing the network adapter etc. i can ping the servers ip and name, I just cannot connect to the network drives.
file sharing still works on all the windows 7 computers.
