NetServer (2)

Let's talk about NetServer.

In case of error 67 on Windows while connecting to IFS on i5/OS check if following Windows local policy is set properly:

Network security: Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC) clients

Suggested value:"No minimum".


Changes of the value are reflected after system restart.



Authentication to i5/OS NetServer can be setup to "Encrypted Password" or "Encrypted Password/Network Security". In case of "Encrypted Password", logging to NetServer is simple to configure but does not use LDAP to authenticate user. "Network Security" allows to use Kerberos to logon. Configuring for "Encrypted Password/Network Security" first tries to find LDAP. If LDAP is not found then "Encrypted Password" method is used. When LDAP is not available extremely long logging time can be experienced. It should be keep in mind especially when moving machine to new environment through backup/Recovery of operating system.
