Description Ken Ortiz 2007-05-31 10:37:28 UTC
When running under 3.0.22 on linux, I could connect to shares with XP and win2k.  Since upgrading to 3.0.25a yesterday, I can connect with XP, but NOT win2k.  The client generates a very generic error:
The network request is not supported

There is nothing in smbd or nmbd log to help troubleshoot.  I realize win2k is old, but it's necessary for two of our machines, and critical we be able to connect to these samba shares.  Here is my smb.conf.  Some things have been added in fix attempts, such as msdfs settings.  Win2k clients have also been rebooted several times.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please set up client machine specific logs eg. :

log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

set the log to debug level 10 and try to connect from
a failing client. This should tell us more aboout what is
going on.

No feedback from the reporter for a very long time.
Closing out bug report.
Please reopen if it's still an issue in a current Samba version.
