extract from the above article:

  With this update installed, connecting to older SMB servers
  using the Client for Microsoft Networks is no longer
  possible, because these older servers do not support encryption
  of passwords sent over the network. 

  The following SMB servers are known not to support password
  encryption over the network: 

       LAN Manager for UNIX (including Hewlett-Packard LM/X) 

please could someone from microsoft, hewlett packard and the people
responsible for LAN Manager for UNIX comment on the above extract.  

particularly the bits about "older SMB servers", and "known not to
support password encryption".

thank you.
