MWG 6.8.7 - Build 8378: NTLM Authentication / Windows 2008R2

Jump to solution

Hello,

we are using MWW 6.8.7 - Build 8378. The system is member of a Windows 2003 domain. The users are authenticated by NTLM Authentication, NTLMv2 is enabled.

The windows administrator will update the Windows 2003 domain to Windows 2008R2 domain.

Domain functional level and forest functional level will be raised to Windows 2008R2.

Is this a problem for the NTLM authentication by MWG?

Does anyone run such a construct?

In the the release notes for MWG 6.8.7 - 7306 (https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/22000/PD22650/en_US/...)

I found this information:

- Authentication: Native NTLM support for Windows Server 2008 AD (79567)

Thanks in advance!

Regards.

Hello,

from our Lab tests all worked fine. So at least from our tests I cannot see a reason why an upgrade should fail. Of course I cannot provide a guarantee that the upgrade will run without any issues, but I am not aware of any.

Best,

Andre

Hello,

from an engineering perspective we do not expect any trouble. However it is not possible to guarantee that all works well. We will do some quick tests in our lab. I will let you know what the outcome is. Maybe some others have performed the upgrade already.

Best,

Andre
