Yes, yes it did. The old install had "server signing = auto" but this
seems to break the new one. Setting the following options fixes it:

        server signing = disabled
        smb encrypt = disabled

Is there a paper discussing these options in detail? Is there something I
should add to my group policy files to make this work better?
