Configuring Access and Starting Windows File Services

  1. Select the SMB service on the left side of Server Admin, and then click the Settings button in the toolbar.

  2. In the General pane, enter server17 in the Computer Name field and WG_SEVENTEEN in the Workgroup field.
  3. Click the Access tab, and select the “Allow Guest access” checkbox.
  4. Set the maximum number of client connections to 15.
  5. Leave the default authentication models selected (“NTLMv2 & Kerberos” and NTLM).
  6. Click the Advanced tab. Select “Enable WINS server” from the WINS Registration options.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Start the SMB service by clicking the Start SMB button in the bottom-left corner.
