    Ever since I updated my Mini Server to 10.7.3 ( using the combo update ), I've been unable to access SMB shares from my Win7 client; every time I try to map a drive, I get an error saying incorrect username / password.

    Oddly, I can access the share over SMB from my Air running Lion 10.7.3.

    All accounts are local, there's no OD involved....

    Appreciate any pointers.....

    Hmmmm, somehow I've managed to fix it by removing SMB from the share point, turning off file sharing, changing the password for my user account, re-starting file sharing, and enabling SMB for the share point.

    Something is not quite right, though, as following the password change, I can remotely administer the server using Server Admin, but not with Server.app ( it wobbles the screen at me when I try and connect ).

    It appears that there's some disconnect between changing the password in Server.app, and changing it in Users & Accounts under System Preferences...
