By default, a Windows Server 2003 requires signature of SMB packets (at
least, a Windows Server 2003 DC).

Yes, you can look for the following security option
Microsoft network server: Digitally sign commnunications (always) :
and set it to Disabled, instead of Enabled.
This security option modifies the following registry value:
Content: 0 to disable, 1 to enable
If you don't want to reboot after that change, you can stop the srv.sys
driver and services that depend on it using the following command:
C:\>net stop srv
Then, you can restart it, as well as the services that depend on it
(in particular, netlogon)
C:\>net start srv
