Windows7 client as Member of a Samba Domain
This document (7005131) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10
Windows7 support had been added to Samba after SLES11 was released thus the Samba version on the SLES11 media lacks this functionality.
Customers with a valid support contract can open a Service Request and ask for a PTF.
Additional to the PTF a few configuration settings are required:
On the Windows 7 client, two Registry settings need to added prior to joining the domain: HKLM\System\CCS\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters DWORD DomainCompatibilityMode = 1 DWORD DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0 Other configuration settings should NOT be touched.
Required changes to the SLES10 codebase would be far too intrusive.
Customers having requirements for Windows7 clients need to update to SLES11 and the latest available Samba version thereon.
