After adding an EMC or NetApp host machine to a domain running Windows Server 2012/2012 R2, you may encounter one or both of the following:
Both of these issues are related to known issues with Windows Server 2012/2012 R2 and Windows 8 clients. That is, Windows Server 2012 and later and Windows 8 and later include a newer version of the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. These newer versions now ship with SMB 3.0 (originally known as SMB 2.2)
WORKAROUND: If upgrading the FLARE code is not an option, disable SMB 2.0 on the agent machine running Windows Server 2012/2012 R2.
See http://www.exaltedtechnology.com/windows-8-access-is-denied-to-network-shares-could-be-an-issue-with-smb-2-2-with-emc-cellera-or-nas-device/ for more information on this known issue and how to disable SMB 2.0.
WORKAROUND: Disable "Secure Negotiate" using the following PowerShell command on the agent machine running Windows Server 2012/2012 R2:
Set-ItemProptery -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters" RequireSecureNegotiate -Value 0 -Force
WARNING: This is a temporary workaround because disabling the secure negotiate feature is NOT recommended by Microsoft.
