We're in a mixed Unix (AIX in this Samba case) and Windows domain environment.
Part of what our goal to do this year is to upgrade from XP to Windows 7. While testing, we discovered that we couldn't connect to our Samba shares from Windows 7 like we could on Windows XP.
We're running Windows 7 Enterprise x64 and Samba 3.5.2.
We've disabled the firewall on the Windows 7 machine and created the appropriate keys in from the Samba wiki entry on Windows 7.

Connecting to the samba server was attempted through mapping a network drive. It does prompt for the password but it doesn't proceed from there, really. The message that it displays is that
The specified server can not perform the requested operation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
