Disabling SMB2 on the server resolved the issue. Thanks for the help and the insight. 

From Petri IT Knowledge base

To disable SMB 2.0. You need to do so on both the "client" and the "server" operating systems. To disable SMB 2.0 for Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 systems that are the “client” systems run the following commands:

sc config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi

sc config mrxsmb20 start= disabled

Note there's an extra " " (space) after the "=" sign.

To enable back SMB 2.0 for Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 systems that are the “client” systems run the following commands:

sc config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/mrxsmb20/nsi

sc config mrxsmb20 start= auto

Again, note there's an extra " " (space) after the "=" sign.

In order to disable SMB 2.0 on the server-side computer, follow these steps:


This document contains instructions for editing the registry. If you make any error while editing the registry, you can potentially cause Windows to fail or be unable to boot, requiring you to reinstall Windows. Edit the registry at your own risk. Always back up the registry before making any changes. If you do not feel comfortable editing the registry, do not attempt these instructions. Instead, seek the help of a trained computer specialist.

  1. Run "regedit" on Windows Server 2008 based computer.
  2. Expand and locate the sub tree as follows.


  1. Add a new REG_DWORD key with the name of "Smb2" (without quotation mark)

Value name: Smb2

Value type: REG_DWORD

0 = disabled

1 = enabled

  1. Set the value to 0 to disable SMB 2.0, or set it to 1 to re-enable SMB 2.0.
  2. Reboot the server.

Hi Ray,

I think the point your question is more targeted to is that you know you need a license, but whether the source matters. If you are purchasing the license via Dell/ASAP as part of your Open/other volume license-this would suffice. As far as the windows licensing goes, there is nothing different licensing-wise between a mac version versus buying a license of Win 7 for a spare Dell/HP/other clone machine. As long as you are getting a full version rather than an upgrade, then you are fine.

You must buy a license, however you have a few days to activate the OS.

Subject: win7 licensing question

Dear List:

If one was to put a copy of winodws7 on a mac (in/on/over/with parallels)

That copy needs to be a full boxed copy, not the version we get from Dell/ASAP, right?
