  • Configuring Win 7 to work on a 2003 domain

    Hi, I have a 2003 domain and I have just installed my first Win 7 64-bit machine and joined it to the domain. On this machine, I have installed RSAT to control Group Policy and have copied the template files to a new folder on the domain controller and don't appear to have any problems with Group Policy. Everything works fine when I am logged in as a domain administrator, however when I log in as any domain user, I am getting problems. I have even added one domain user as a local administrator and this isn't working. Basically what is happening is when the user logs in, a message appears saying "your roaming profile was not completely synchronized due to a slow connection" and that I am being logged in locally (works ok with Win XP). Once logged in, I am not able to change any files on the C drive without saving it else where and then copying back in as an administrator. Please can someone provide me with some assistance with this. Many thanks.

    The clients should use SMB 1.0 to connect to a Windows 2003 server (same when it would connect to a Win 2000/XP machine).

    Additional reading: Preparing for migration of roaming profiles with computers that run Windows Vista and Windows 7

    Note: To re-enable SMB2 at a future date,
    start again an Elevated Command Prompt
    enter the following two commands to enable SMB 2 again:
    sc config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/mrxsmb20/nsi
    sc config mrxsmb20 start= auto

    (after each equals sign there should be a space)
