SMB Signing issues

Last Modified: 2017-04-26
Hello Everyone, I am working with a bank that has monthly security scans, and one of the really big issues is SMB Signing.
This system does not allow SMB signing. SMB signing allows the recipient of SMB packets to confirm their authenticity and
helps prevent man in the middle attacks against SMB. SMB signing can be configured in one of three ways: disabled entirely
(least secure), enabled, and required (most secure)."
I have made registry changes to the servers (Server 2008 and Server 2012) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesLanmanServerParameters
EnableSecuritySignature = 1
RequireSecuritySignature = 1
And on the PC's (Windows 7 Pro and Windows 10 Pro)
EnableSecuritySignature = 1
RequireSecuritySignature = 1
We are still getting the error each time the report runs. Is there something I maybe missing?
