Why can't I access my Samba shares? Please see the details regarding my environment GPO settings.

My environment enforces 'Microsoft Network Client: Digitally Sign Communications (Always) & (if Server agrees) via Group Policy. This causes access to the Samba shares on the KACE appliance to fail. I can not update drivers or create boot media. How can I fix this, or is there a way to get the KACE appliance to work with these settings? I have searched the forums for answers and find nothing, please help.

  • have you tried to access the share using the IP address instead of the hostname?
    What version of the K2000 are you running?

    • Yes I tried IP address, this used to work before the policy got enforced. Version is 3.7.116 - jjvillani 7 years ago
  • I have an idea to overcome the issue:
    1-With VMWARE Workstation or another virtualisation tool create a Windows 7/8 VM.
    2-Do not join it to any domain and do not install any software on it
    Are you able to access to the network share of the K2000 from there?!?!?!

    If yes you found already a good solution...
    Kind regards,

    • Marco, I disagree, that is not a good solution and a security risk. All the workstations on our network must meet the STIGS. Therefore, it would be a violation to let an unhardened box touch the network, VM or Metal. - jjvillani 7 years ago
      • Especially of you want to create a Gold Image you'd start to model it on a virtual machine for a long series of reasons.
        Anyway when you will start to use the K2000 and your target device will boot using the KBE that is at the end WinPE3, 4, 5 or 10 with something more that OS (KBE) does not care about GPOs at all and it's not hardened as well...but it will hit run (even for a limited time) on your network...
        I'd suggest to open a call with the support because I do not see any other solution here...they may be able to find a way to comply with your policies.
        Kind regards,
