 Hi John and calnetad admins,

We are running a OS X 10.6.4 Xserve for our departmental fileserver via 
AFP and SMB, while AFP works fine, SMB can no longer authenticate 
through CAMPUS. I found this google discussion 
about the same problem others are having when upgrading to 2008 R2 from 

I'm also copying this to the rest of calnetad-admins, does any of you 
run a similar setup to us? Any suggestion?

Any chance we can have ACTDIR11 put back in service temporarily?

Neither you nor us would necessarily realize this was happening because clients typically round robin until they communicate successfully with a domain controller. The DCs get so much traffic we would not be able to distinguish a client application that was doing this. The dev and QA environments were upgraded to R2 over the summer, but there is not enough participation in that environment to be certain that there isn't an application that may have an issue. Occasionally, Microsoft makes minor changes to components such as SMB signing with service packs and R2 releases, but we do not know of any specific issue to be concernedabout with this release.

Eventually, we will change the functional mode to 2008R2, but further announcements will come later in the year concerning that change.
