I make agree with your statements, thatit would be better to use NTLMv2
instead of NTLMv1.
I made additional discovering included Sammba4 and Windows 2008R2 settings
and got working interaction between Samba4 and Windows 2008R2 using NTLMv2
from Windows side.
The following parameters have to be set to the followong values:
Samba4 side - smd.conf -> [Global] section -> ntlm auth = no or remove ntlm
auth at all
Windows 2008R2 side - either Local Policies -> Security Options -> "Network
Security: LAN Manager authentication level" = "Send NTLMv2 response only.
Refuse LM & NTLM" or
if there is no LmCompatibilityLevel at
create it with REG_DWORD type.
Then restart Samba4 and reboot Windows 2008R2.
May be this put to Samba4 docs or faq ?
