Unable to connect to CIFS share from EMC Celerra with Windows 8 RTM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just loaded Windows 8 Ent RTM and I am unable to browse any of our file shares from our Celerra NS-120. \\<name> returns "An extended error has occurred" dialogue box. Accessing any actual server shares using the same method works just fine. Network discovery is enabled.

    Any ideas?

  • We're having the same issue. We cannot move forward with Win8 testing until a resolution is found...

  • open up command prompt as administrator and run these 2 powershell commands:

    powershell.exe Set-SmbClientConfiguration -RequireSecuritySignature $true

    pwershell.exe Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters" RequireSecureNegotiate -Value 0 -Force

    Answer Y or A when prompted to accept the changes....

  • This did fix my problem as well.   I ran into this during Windows 7 setup.  My question here would be, why did this start happening in Windows 7?  I can't figure out why this all of a sudden became an issue.  For me it started happening once we moved to deployment using ADK and MDT 2012, prior to that it didn't seem like a problem.  This could just be a coincidence, but I wish I had more of a hard reason why this became an issue.

  • gav46 posted the solution to my issue, but the commands required a couple minor changes.

    1. Run PowerShell as Administrator

    2. Set-SmbClientConfiguration -RequireSecuritySignature 1

    Answer Y when prompted to confirm the modification.

    3. Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters" RequireSecureNegotiate -Value 0 -Force
