Macintosh in Windows2003 Network

By dilloo ·
Can anyone explain the configurations to be done on the MAC as well as on the Windows server machine to connect a Macintosh 8.6 to the Windows2003 network. I'll appreciate if someone can provide any references.

There is an excellent weblog here on the MacWindows site:

One of the major issues is to ensure that the Microsoft server is not digitally signing the SMB communications. If SMB signing is required by your organization for security, then you aren't going to be able to connect the MAC to the W2K3 server.

In addition, I have seen issues where the MAC would not automatically update the Kerberos ticket after 10 hours and would lose connectivity. That can be solved by a download from MIT:

Thursby has been tacking this proble mfor a while now.

DAVE is a program that allows a mac to access shared files and printers on a windows network.

ADmitMac is an Active Directory client for Macs running OS X 10.2.X or 10.3.x.

I got the same problem when I installed my new w2003 Server.
1) in the server create a share volume: named, then select the Mac option in the bottom of the second page.
2) in the mac, give a static IP Address (manually configuration), in that way the mac will not loose connection
