I have an AD domain. A user was on XP and had a drive mapped to a Samba share on a ScoUnix server (which will be going away in a few months, thankfully). She maps the drive using a different set of credentials than her domain account, but the drive maps fine. In Windows XP she had no issues. I recently upgraded her to Windows XP Pro x64 and now when she maps the drive it won't allow her to create a folder on the mapped drive over 8 characters. The odd thing is, if she just browses to the share (i.e. \\servername\sharename) rather than accessing the mapped drive, it allows her to create whatever length folder name she wants.
Anyone else ever see this or have a fix for it?
Please change default NTLM level. Start and type in "secpol.msc" and enter Press in Win7. Local Policies--Security Options, and find Network security: LAN Manager authentication level on the right site.

I did the local policy change, to no avail. I'm not sure what version of Samba. I'm going to do a workaround until we get rid of this ScoUnix box in the next couple of months. I made a shortcut to the share on the users desktop and told them to use that rather than the mapped drive when they need to create a new folder. It can then be accessed thru the mapping. She's one of those impossible-to-deal-with "I resist change" end users, so I get to hear her crap until my ears bleed.
Thanks for the help!
