Vista and saving files to shared drives
We have trouble saving shared files to our Mac OSX server - get messages like
access denied or unable to save from various MS Office products. Any ideas?

From Michael Bishop (MS) - Basically, the issue with Samba and Vista is
that Vista no longer permits LM or NTLM authentication by default; only
NTLMv2. Samba versions 1.x and 2.x only support LM and NTLM, so there's
an issue there.

Recommended solution: upgrade to Samba 3.x and enable NTLMv2 by adding
"client ntlmv2 auth = yes" to your smb.conf file. Because of another
issues with previous versions, I strongly recommend upgrading to 3.0.22
or later regardless of your choice for this particular instance.

Alternate solution: change Vista's security settings to permit
lower-security authentications. (as below)

To enable Windows Vista to connect to Mac OS X with Windows File Sharing
enabled, you will need to change the following policy in Windows Vista:

Start>Run>secpol.msc [enter]

Click on "Local Policies" --> "Security Options"

Navigate to the policy "Network Security: LAN Manager authentication
level" and double-click it to get its Properties. By default Windows
Vista sets the policy to "NTVLM2 responses only". Use the drop-down
arrow to change this to "LM and NTLM – use NTLMV2 session security if
negotiated".

In Vista Home Premium, you won't have this tool so per Steve Winograd, do:

1. Run the registry editor and open this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Lsa

1. If it doesn't already exist, create a DWORD value named
LmCompatibilityLevel

3. Set the value to 1

4. Reboot

Please note that this assumes that you've set up OS X file sharing
correctly and created a user account/password on that box to match the
one on the Vista machine.
