CIFS Mapped Drives Not Accessible Win 10 Pro x64 SME Server 9.2

CIFS Mapped Drives Not Accessible Win 10 Pro x64 SME Server 9.2
« on: November 30, 2020, 05:07:21 PM »
We are having an issue with some of our Win 10 Pro x64 workstations where users are not able to access mapped drives on our SME 9.2 file server.  From what I have researched I believe it is something to do with the SMBv1 protocol.  I have found a workaround where I log in on a different user profile such as my own, then reboot and the mapped drives are then accessible until the next shutdown/reboot.  Are there plans to migrate to a new SMB protocol?  Is anyone else experiencing this?

Yes I have a similar issue. I can connect to the mapped drive via its IP address rather than share name. My server is in server-only mode, and I thought the issue might have been something to do with a PiHole system I have just implemented on a Raspberry Pi. I haven't had much time to debug it any further.

Yes I was able to get it to work on IP address vs server name for a while but now not even that is working consistently

Any plans to update SME server to support SMBv2 or SMBv3?

Yes, you can map them via an IP address. You just lose browsing functionality.

Please have  search through the forums as this has been answered many times before.

Look for "Windows 10 samba" etc.

Also see SMB ServerMinProtocol/ServerMaxProtocol

Again, please read the forums.

Note.

If you do not use SMBv1, you lose network browsing support. You can re-enable browsing functionality in v10 with smeserver-wsdd

v9 is now End of Line and will get no further updates (see elsewhere here).

v10 has Samba 4.10.16 and uses SMB3 but can use older version if really necessary.
