We have one folder on a Windows Server 2012 R2 that we want to share without passwords. I've tried everything I can find, but no matter what I try, the server prompts for a password on the share and won't let me in. The server and the users of the share are in the same domain.
The share itself has only these permissions: 'Everyone' full control, and 'ANONYMOUS LOGON' full control.
The NTFS folder has these permissions added: 'Everyone' full control, and 'ANONYMOUS LOGON' full control.
There's no 'Turn off password protected sharing' option in the Network and Sharing Center. I don't really want to turn off password protected sharing anyway, in case a need arises for a password protected share.
I tried this answer. It didn't work. I also don't want to enable a guest account.
Is there a policy hack I don't know about? What else is there?
