Hello and thanks for the excellent forum! My question is whether it's possible with Xerox MFDs to enable SMB signing so that I can enable a setting as follows on my domain computers:
The most effective way to require SMB signing is by making the following changes to your domain group policy: Microsoft network client: Digitally sign communications (always) Policy Setting: Enabled Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (always) Policy Setting: Enabled Please note that this setting may cause issues with third-party applications and devices, such as multi-function copiers/printers and some versions of MacOS, from properly authenticating to your domain if they do not support SMB signing. We recommend placing these types of devices in a separate domain group in which SMB signing is not required. For more information on SMB signing, please consult Microsoft knowledge base article #887429 at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=887429 for specific operating system information on enabling SMB Security Signatures.
The forums that I have read where people have trouble with scanning always point to informing the user to DISABLE SMB Signing. Well, now I have a security product in my environment that is telling me to ENABLE it but I'm pretty sure that it will break scanning.
Please advise so that I have a leg to stand on from the manufacturer (Xerox). Thanks very much again!!
