We have a Windows 8 Pro OS installed on a HP Envy desktop. It is connected to a private network via an Ethernet but is not attached to the company domain. I am trying to access a server, located on the network and joined to the domain, from the Windows 8 Pro machine but am unable to connect.
The way I am trying to connect to the server is by opening Windows Explorer, typing in the name of the server as \\Server Name
I am then prompted to enter credentials,which I enter as Domain\user, to access the server
I receive the error message attached to this post stating that the machine is not accessible.
The server I am trying to connect to is a WAFL system running DataOnTap 8.x.......its a proprietary Unix based OS
....its a Netapp storage device.
I am able to connect to this server using a Windows 7 machine that is both attached to the domain, and not attached to the company domain. I can also open shared folders on other machines that are attached to the company domain. I am at a loss as far as what to do next.
I have enabled file and print sharing and looked online and tried the following
"Assuming this Windows 8 Enterprise machine isn't locked down with Group Policy.
This type of problem usually requires that you change the lanman server parimeters in order to get Windows 8 working with older servers. Do these adjustments on the Windows 8 machines that needs to connect to the server.
Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Local Security Policy
Local Policies - Security Options
Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
Set to Send LM & NTLM responses only
Set the Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
Disable Require 128-bit encryption
Reboot all machines after making the adjustment."
This workflow did not solve anything. Any suggestions? I can provide any additional information that may be of help to solve this issue.
