|Cause||RFE AM-27744 - Customer is trying to backup the AM8 server to a Windows file share. Their Security Policy currently requires NTLMv2 on our network and will refuse LM and NTLMv1.|
Update, Q1 2015 notes in AM-27744 indicate this is included in latest patch for AM 8.1 SP1
"Refer to test case “AM-DR-BKNow-WinShare-022 Verify backup to win share with Send NTLMv2 response only and Refuse LM & NTLM responses option”
As part of regression, checked backup, schedule backup ,Restore from backup, Delete backup and migrate to Winshare locations with all the Security Policies available to the windows locations.."
|Resolution||There is an RFE AM-27744 to support NTLMv2 but until then only LM andNTLMv1 supported.|
