What I didn’t have to do

Just to let you know that on this server I did NOT have to wack off SMB signing to get the Konica copier/printer to work and the file transfer speed working.


I left the system “as is” with a full network of XP sp2 machines and the NIC at autosense for the GIG nic, and 10 speed for the Internet nic and do not see any issues with transfer of file speed.


I think I would say if you have no 98s/ME/NTs, you shouldn’t have to disable SMB signing. Give it a try and see what you think.


Andy actually re-enabled it last week as he was getting “You cannot open file shares or Group Policy snap-ins when you disable SMB signing for the Workstation or Server Service on a domain controller” and Kevin was noting that he was seeing the same issue.


Kevin also reported finding some kewl stuff in the  gpresult /v  command:
