Moving copiers to 2008 server

Older copiers that you got scanning working to 2003 servers may not work on 2008 and above servers. It seems that MS “enhanced” the SMBv2 protocol in 2008 and now reject SMBv2 requests if the requester doesn’t support extended attributes (whatever those are) In any case, the fix is to set the server to allow legacy SMBv2 negotiation as follows:

1.Open Registry Editor. To do this, click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
2.Locate and then right-click the following registry subkey:

3.On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value.
4.Type AllowLegacySrvCall, and then press ENTER.
5.Right-click AllowLegacySrvCall, and then click Modify.
6.Type 1 in the Value data box, and then click OK.
7.Exit Registry Editor.
No reboot necessary.
