My firm has migrated from Windows 2000 Server to V. 2003.
I have lost my connection to the server from my G4
operating OS 10.3. Connection denied because either
username or password is invalid. Have checked...they seem
to be fine. Had no problems previously. All PC company -
MIS manager can't resolve. PLEASE help!

Your server is now requiring SMB signing, and Mac OS 10.3 does not support
this. If you can get your admins to turn that off, you should be ok. If
they won't turn it off, you will need DAVE. DAVE supports SMB signing

Please let me know if you discover the answer to this
issue, I just upgraded my Mac to OS10.3.5 and still
cannot connect to the network, my thought now is the
Server needs additional settings adjustment to allow
access for Mac?

For both dwade and emwest, your problem sounds like a now almost classic
case of digital signing. See this article on Microsoft's website
<http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;823659> and
refer to item number six. If you're connecting to your server using SMB,
then you need to do this. Item 6g, specifically mentions Mac OS X
clients.

You'll change this in your server's Domain Controller policy or Domain
Security Policy.

An alternative would be to install File Services for Macintosh on your
server and connect via AFP from your Mac.

Hope this helps! bill
