SAP B1 Install: Problems to access Shared Folders from Windows Version 1803


I am trying to install the Windows Components for SAP Business ONE / HANA on a Windows 10 (version 1803).

I had already successfully installed these components, but the there was some problem with the windows server and the server got reinstalled.

When I try to install the windows components I get to the screen where I a supposed to choose the components to install, but I cannot install them because another screen opens informing me that it cannot access the shared folders.

I checked on the server and it seems that shared folders are ok:

As the newer versions of windows 10 (since 1709?) don't support samba v1 per default, since it is a security risk. The Administrator's Handbook states:

Make sure that your Windows machine can connect to Samba protocol version 1. If you enforce using Samba protocol version 2 or higher on the Windows machine, you need to install your Linux components on SUSE 12.

It would have been nice to know what components to install on SLES 12. But I have already 4.6.14+ that is why I think it should support version 2 or newer.

Therefore I edited /etc/samba/smb.conf

.... other stuff
min protocol = SMB2
max protocol = SMB3
client min protocol = SMB2
client max protocol = SMB3

I am not sure whether this neccesary, because I read that per default if no version is specified version 3 or newer is assumed. But I am not sure whether this applies to SLES 12.

I restarted samba. Checked the validation on the server which showed that the shared folders are okay. But unfortunately I still get the same error.

Any advice appreciated.

Best regards

  • Ok, I think I got working. I change the smb.conf so that contained:

    .... other stuff
    min protocol = NT1
    max protocol = NT1
    client min protocol = NT1
    client max protocol = NT1

    ..other stuff

    Not sure why this works. If somebody can enlighten me, I would be grateful.
