Came in this Monday and windows 2003 server had re-started (power loss) no longer can access folder shares on windows 10 and mac os sonoma through smb. Older windows computers (XP) are able to access as well as older macs (10.4.11 tiger).

Any help on resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi art

    MacOS Sonoma might be using newer SMB versions that are incompatible with Windows 2003 (which supports SMBv1).

    In win10 Press Windows key + R, type optionalfeatures.exe, and hit Enter. Scroll down to “SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support” and make sure the client option is enabled.

    2003 is an outdated system, and it’s recommended to migrate to a more modern server version if possible.

    Hi Art,

    Thanks for your post. Based on my research, when you failed to access the file with SMB in Windows Server 2003, please make sure SMB 1.0 is enabled in your machine. Usually, it is not installed by default. You need to add the feature before you can access old shares.

    Best Regards,
