    NAS / Linux users and Spring update edition SMB1 settings changed

    Hi folks

    Ms in the Spring edition update (1803) have changed the SMB settings again -- there's no option this time (thankfully) to "auto disable SMB1" but you have to enable it and re-boot. Then sharing works again (BOTH WAYS)

    I think Ms were a bit too hasty in trying to kill of SMB1 - loads and loads of NAS servers and Linux distros still use it although some newer kernels have got support for SMB3 - I haven't got that working yet so I'm just leaving well alone --it's not critical files I need to share just some data and multi-media stuff.

    I've currently got 2 NAS servers (Linux servers) and the Spring edition Windows machine on network currently -- all computers now can see and access each others shares.

    Mine has the option to use SMB 2 and 3 and I've set it to use 3.

    Hi there @swarfega

    In SAMBA conf I've tried it with setting SMB level to 2 / 3 on my servers but doing that after re-starting SAMBA I don't see any work groups so I just set it back and it's working fine. Remote TV's / amazon fire TV box also doesn't see files when SMB level set in SAMBA on the servers. I use KODI on my remote amazon fire TV to access multi-media on the server - no need for any streaming software on the server either. For Audio the DAC's in the latest amazon fire TV are very good too and can also go into a decent amplifier for music etc.

    I'm using CENTOS rel 7.2 which still has a rel 3 rather than rel 4 kernel but it's so stable I just leave it as it's just a file server and internet gateway. I'm messing around with a couple of other things for servers but the old boxes I'm running I'm just leaving until they drop dead !!! I don't run any applications on them - apart from some test VM's.


    ======================= Global Settings =====================================

    ; max protocol = SMB3
    # can set it to SMB2 if you want experimental SMB2 support.
    workgroup = WORKGROUP
    server string = Samba Server Version %v

    ; max protocol = SMB2

    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    max log size = 50
    security = user
    passdb backend = tdbsam
    name resolve order = bcast host lmhosts wins

    load printers = yes
    cups options = raw

    I wonder if you might have more luck with other distros.

    Hi there

    Probably but these things run 24 hrs a day and never a problem -- am picking up a couple of boxes to replace these later this weekend with faster CPU's etc so I'll experiment then -- currently if I hose up family's access to Netflix, Sport channels, Amazon Prine etc -- my life won't be worth living !!!!!!!!

    Should you not enable smb1 for security risk?

    You would want to disable SMB1 to prevent a security risk.

    However, if your devices only support SMB1, you're stuck for now unless you can update or buy new devices that support SMB2 or SMB3 (recommended).
