Some users have reported issues accessing a Network Share on Windows 10 systems that are not joined to a domain. This may also apply to Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019.
Microsoft has taken the stance on disabling guest access on SMBv2 in newer versions of Windows, including, but not limited to Windows 10, Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019. To work around this issue, we have provided some solutions that will allow you to access the Network Share.
You will need to map a Network Share with a local network letter using credentials. This will require a user that is assigned to a Network Share in QuantaStor. Once done, this mapping will be completed and you will get access via this mapped letter. To assign a user to a Network Share in QuantaStor, you will need to modify it in the QuantaStor WebUI. More information on modifying a Network Share can be found here.
You will need to enable guest logons via group policy.
- Go into 'Local Group Policy Editor'
- Navigate to 'Administrative Templates - Network - Lanman Workstation'
- Find the setting 'Enable insecure guest logons'
- Enabled - Allows guest access to the Network Share and will prompt for credentials
- Disabled - Disables guest access to the Network Share and will not prompt for credentials
- Log out and back in
Other solutions include enabling SMBv1 and modifying QuantaStor. If either of the solutions above do not work for you, please contact OSNEXUS support to help assist you further.
