Invalid signature errors are thrown in the "system log" and "work manager" log when connecting to a share on a SAN, or MAP will not validate paths (see screenshot below) found on a share that you can connect to without issue in Windows Explorer.




If upgrading the firmware on the SAN and/or NAS does not resolve the problem, the workaround is to run powershell as an administrator on ALL servers (WEB, APP, DPE's) and run the following:

Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters" RequireSecureNegotiate -Value 0 -Force



This could mean that there is an incompatiblity with the NAS and/or SAN and the Server 2012 security model.
