    SMB signing is mandatory and we have disabled it.

    I've joined a Samba server to a 2K3 domain as a Domain Member and can see shares via smbclient. However if I try to mount shares using mount or smbmount I get the error: "SMB signing is mandatory and we have disabled it." I have tried enabling and disabling "client use spnego = yes" and "client signing = yes" to no avail. I've read several postings about whether you can or can't mount a 2K3 share via Samba. Does anyone know the definitive answer on this?

    Thanks in advance.

    CIFS

    Ok, after doing more research it appears SMB is nogo with MS Server 2K3. That is unless I disable SMB Signing on the server, which MS really doesn't want done:

    "By disabling this security setting, you expose all domain controller communications to man-in-the-middle attacks. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you upgrade your clients rather than disable this security setting. The Active Directory client, which is required for Windows 95 clients to perform Server Message Block (SMB) signing, can be obtained from the \clients\win9x subdirectory of the Windows 2000 Server CD."

    So CIFS is the way to mount shares from a 2003 Server.
