FAQ - Mapping Certain Snap Drives

I've set the SMB configuration but I still can't map to my snap server. What do I need to do?

The SMB password configuration must be enabled and the LAN Manager authentication level changed in Local Policies.

Some Snap Servers require certain configuration settings.

  1. Click Start
  2. Select Control Panel


  3. Click Classic View on left nav bar


  4. Double click Administrative Tools on the right side of the Window.
  5. On right side - double click Local Security Policy


  6. When the User Account Control widow opens and says, Windows needs your permission to continue, Click the Continue button.


  7. The Local Security Policy window will open.
  8. On the Left side, click on arrow next to Local Policies to drop down the sub directories.
  9. Click on Security Options
  10. On the right side, scroll down and double click on: Microsoft network client: Send unencrypted password to third-party SMB servers. (disabled)


  11. When the window opens:
  12. Select ENABLED
  13. Click Apply
  14. Click OK


  15. On the right side, locate and double click on: Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level
  16. From the drop down box, select: Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated.


  17. Click Apply
  18. Click OK
  19. Reboot

Now you need to map your drive:

  1. Open Windows Explorer
  2. Click Start
  3. Select All Programs
  4. Select Accessories
  5. Windows Explorer
  6. Click the ALT tab
  7. Click Tools
  8. Select Map Network Drive
  9. Select Drive letter Y:
  10. Folder = \\snapdrivename\username
  11. Click Finish
