I did see this document and did change the default back to the LanMan

As I mentioned, there is no Windows server in our environment. Each PC, be
it XP or Win 7, uses the SAME sign on user id and password (a requirement
of our network support team). This user id and password is NOT the one used
to sign into the iSeries.

If I understand correctly, the user id and password used to sign into
Windows must be the SAME as the user id and password used to sign into the
iSeries (including case) for this to work. Is this correct? If so, I guess
I can't use this anymore.

Windows 7 changed its default client security policy to use NTLMv2
authentication and has completely disabled the use of LanMan (LM)
password encryption. As a result, a case-insensitive password can not be
sent from Windows 7. This can make connecting to NetServer more
difficult; however, it is a good idea because LanMan password encryption
can be easily deciphered using any number of easily obtainable programs.

This has been working for years.

After the upgrade to Windows 7, I recreated the shared folder and gave
everyone rights to read and write to it. When I look under QNTC I can see
the Windows 7 PC, but no shared folders appear. When I try and add a link
to the folder I get an error that I'm not authorized.

I should mention that the user id and password on the Windows 7 machine
the same as they were on XP. I've read some material online that says the
windows userid/password must match one on the iSeries. Under XP this was
never the case. Is there additional checking under Windows 7?

Also, we do not have a Windows server here. It's a small shop and
everything is peer-to-peer. No domain controller or active directory.

Other than the CPFA09C error message on the iSeries, I see no other error
messages. The event logs on the Windows 7 machine show no entries during
the time I run the MKDIR command on the iSeries.

Any suggestions?
