client lanman auth is disabled error for samba

The error:

Server requested LANMAN password (share-level security) but ‘client lanman auth’ is disabled

is easily fixable. You just need to tell samba that client lanman auth is enabled. And here is how to do this:

If you are getting this error then add the following in the globals section of the samba configuration:

client lanman auth = Yes


Ensure that you change this in the file /etc/samba/smb.conf
