Can't Open OS X Server with Windows 7

Hello all,
I'm running the latest version of Snow Leopard Server. Up until now, all of my employees in my small design shop have used Macs, so no problems. I now have an employee using Windows 7 and we cannot get her on to our server. Under Networks the server doesn't even show up. I've searched everywhere, SMB is running, her account settings look fine. I am utterly lost. I purchased a Windows 7 box for my home network awhile ago and ended up returning it for the same reason. Windows 7 was supposed to simplify networking but instead it just doens't work, which I suppose makes it simpler.
So, any idea where to start trouble shooting this? Thanks for any tips!

I'd likely configure Windows 7 as a virtual machine guest of Mac OS X; that means you're running Mac for most stuff, and Windows for what you need.  As for access into Samba (SMB) services from Mac OS X, here is a crib sheet of the usual registry settings.  You'll usually need to lower the Windows security level settings to allow the Windows client to operate with Mac OS X and Samba file services.

  • Can I use Snow Leopard Server with Windows clients?

    Mainly for e-mails and calendars. I have small office with 12 windows computers from XP to Win 7 and MS Office from 2003 to 2007. Will Snow Leopard Server work with that?

    Can Mac OS X Server do this?  Sure. 
    You're going to be learning a whole lot about running a server, regardless.
    You really need to sort out what you have here and where you want to be, and how to upgrade or replace yor migrate your environment, and before you add the substantial increase in complexity of serving Windows from Mac.  If you can't get off of Office circa 2003 or similarly old software, what are you going to do when you find, say, an incompatibility, or a need to migrate mail clients?     Who are you going to call for help?
    I'd guess that Small Business Server (SBS) is likely your best target here. 
    AFAIK, Exchange Server (which I'm guessing is what you're using) supports larger mailboxes in newer releases.
    Look at the sustaining costs for what you're considering purchasing, too.  How much it'll cost to configure, deploy and maintain the box and the network.  Up-front costs are an obvious consideration, but maintaining many boxes and many versions itself introduces costs.
    The arrival of Lion Server next month does not change my opinion.   (And I'm not usually suggesting Windows and Windows Server boxes, either.)  (And with the arrival of Lion and Lion Server, I'll follow my usual approach and not look to upgrade to the first release of that (or any other) new platform, if there are business-critical functions and services involved.  You need time to debug and test the deployment.)

    This is on an iPad, correct? Are you sure you have a network connection? Is your iPad Wifi or Wifi & 3G? I know these might seem like dumb questions, but we've got to narrow it down to get a solution. If you're absolutely positive you have an active network connection we can move on to other things.

  • Integrate On-Premises Exchange Server With Windows Server Essentials

    I have Exchange Server 2013 installed on Win Server 2012 R2 joined to Windows Server Essentials domain.  Attempting to integrate the Exchange Server into the Essentials domain from the Essentials Dashboard using the wizard fails with the error, "Cannot
    locate an Exchange Server on the network. Make sure that your Exchange Server is setup and that it is connected to the network".  I can communicate with the server in multiple ways from the Essentials Server and other computers on the domain.  Mail
    flow in and out of the Exchange Server works without issue.  I can use the various management tools to administer the Exchange Server.  The only task I cannot complete is integrating it into the Essentials environment which I need to do to move on
    to creating user mailboxes for user accounts setup in AD.
    All research to date has come up empty handed.
    Help!

    Hi RSUL,
    Any update?
    On current situation, would you please let me confirm something more? It may help me to understand this issue
    clearly.
    Would you please let me know how join the Windows Server 2012 R2 (which had been installed Exchange Server 2013) to Windows Server Essentials domain? Did use Connector software
    (type http://servername/connect)?
    On server essentials, please open Dashboard and navigate to DEVICES. Then check the Status of this server which had been installed Exchange Server 2013.
    Currently, the Services Integration features, including on-premises Exchange integration, are only supported in a single domain controller environment. Meanwhile, the integration
    wizard must be run on a domain controller.
    In addition, please refer to the following article and check if can help you.
    On
    Premises Exchange Integration Windows Server 2012 Essentials
    Integrate an On-Premises Exchange Server
    with Windows Server Essentials
    By the way, please check Event Viewer and some relevant logs if you can find some more clues.
    Hope this helps.
    Best regards,
    Justin Gu

  • Can't open libHaru-generated PDF with Reader, other readers work.

    Our application uses libHaru to export PDF images.  These PDFs can be opened using PDFlite on Windows, Preview on Mac and some other readers.  However, I have tried several versions of Adobe Reader on both platforms and the files fail to open with the message: "There was an error processing a page.  There was a problem reading this document (14)."   So, it seams that Adobe Reader believes that there is problem with this file.  However, from my very limited understanding of PDF structure, I have no idea what might be wrong, so I don't know how to fix it.  The file is written unencrypted.  It is about as simple a PDF as we can generate - a red-filled rectangle.  I would greatly appreciate any suggestions or help.

    You are still one version behind on Flash, current is Flash 10.1 r85<br />

  • How can I make Thunderbird start auto with windows start-up

    how can I make Thunderbird start auto with windows start-up

    You can by placing a short cut in the windows startup folder, just like any other windows program.
    However if you do you are likely to encounter problems as downloading mail while the anti virus is still loading and the network is busy announcing your machines arrival to the network ( which might be a network of one) and any of a dozen other program are loading is fraught with risk of timeouts and server disconnections as well as error messages that make little sense because they are about something that is still loading.
    So the bottom line is sure you can, but if there are issues take it back out of there as a first step.
