Hi,

We have a Windows 2003 Server Enterprise x64 SP2 system and I am trying to
navigate to a SharePoint Document library using a UNC, example:

\\enhanced2.sharepoint.hp.com\teams\CSM\leaderscor ner\tsmetrics\tsdometrics\americas\WeeklyScorecard s

The problem is, that I’m being prompted for credentials. After some
research it would appear the following technet article would solve the
problem by enabling the use of WebDav Redirector Basic Authentication -
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...23(WS.10).aspx

However after creating the following registry keys and values as the article
describes, the problem still exists:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es
\WebClient\Parameters\UseBasicAuth (DWORD) = 1

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows \CurrentVersion\ Internet
Settings\DisableBasicOverClearChannel (DWORD) = 0

The bottom line would be, that it appears that thru the Windows 2003 SP2
that WebDav Redirector Basic Authenication has been disabled not allowing the
login credentials to be passed to the SharePoint (WebDav) server. Note: We
have another Windows 2003 Server in the same computer room where this problem
does not exist, so it does not appear to be a permissions issue in the
SharePoint document library.

Anyone run across this before and/or knows how to fix it?

Thanks in advance,

Mark

Mark,
That's fairly obscure. I assume you are referring to this:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841215 but your client is a 64-bit server.
If it works from an XP and a Vista client, and not from a 2003 64-bit
server, and if you think it should, then I would call Microsoft PSS,
