Can't map to network storage after booting from ssr2013 recovery disk

Created: 27 Feb 2013 • Updated: 05 Mar 2013 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm trying to recover a win2k8 machine using SSR2013.  I boot from the x64 recovery disk, set up the network and am able

to ping other machines.  I then try to map to my EMC VNXe3100 Network Storage device where my images reside. 

The EMC storage device is in a domain.

I select

Folder : \\machinename\share

then select "Connect using a different user name"

Username: domain\username

Password: xxxxx

I get an error popup saying "An extended error has occured"

I am able to ping the EMC device so I have network connectivity.

I am able to map to the same EMC device using a running Win2k8 server machine which is not in the domain

by using the same domain\username and password as I use when trying to map from SSR2013.  I am also able to

map to the same EMC device using the SSR2011 Recovery Disk.

Take a look here (although this is an old article):

Try mapping using the net use command - what error do you see?

Hi Chris

I found this article which solved my problem

I added the registry key

HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters\RequireSecureNegotiate = 0

and can now map.  I will contact the storage device vendor to see if there is a permanent solution on their device as per the article.

Thanks for your reply
