Solution

Enforce message signing in the host's configuration. On Windows, this is found in the policy setting 'Microsoft network

server: Digitally sign communications (always)'. On Samba, the setting is called 'server signing'. See the 'see also'

links for further details.

=====================================

I could not find any alfresco documentation for configuring  'server signing' in Alfresco 5.2. Kindly help me out for this issue?

Kindly help me to fix this issue.

Regards

Thiyagu

Our CIFS implementation does not support SMB server signing. We recommend that you use WebDAV instead. See the section under "Current Efforts" on this page:
