    NAS / SAMBA 4.8.x updates and connectivity

    Hi folks
    I posted in the VM section but as a lot run NAS servers / Linux OS's I'll repeat the info as some don't use the VM section.

    You might find that after an update to SAMBA 4.8.X (4.7.x is ok and needs no change) that you lose connectivity, can't see your network from the NAS side or even get an error when re-starting SAMBA especially when using SMB1 for connectivity.

    The max protocol = SMB1 in the samba/conf file has now been deprecated -- you have to change the SMB1 to NT1 and then it all works again.

    I've got the example shown in my post : Samba v 4.8.x and connectivity (SMB1 / NAS etc) Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    Thanks @jimbo45. Your NAS access info is always helpful (and appreciated).
