    Samba v 4.8.x and connectivity (SMB1 / NAS etc)


    Hi folks
    I know people use NAS systems on this board which often use Linux type distros. Same goes for VM's.

    Samba 4.8.x now throws error if you specify min protocol = SMB1 in your SMB.CONF file which will hose you up if you need connectivity to NAS via Windows / Smart TV's etc. especially on older gear which only works with SMB1.

    Don't panic

    Change SMB1 to NT1 in the samba.conf file on the NAS server.

    for example : in the [global] section found generally in \etc\samba directory.

    [global]
    max protocol = NT1
    ; 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
    netbios name = hestur

    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    max log size = 50
    security = user
    passdb backend = tdbsam

    .....etc

    then it all works again fine -- example -- on the NAS box - sees the Windows machine OK.

    Windows access also no problem either.

    If running samba v 4.7.x then no probs - no change.

    Linux Samba settings to display Windows shares


    Hi folks

    Samba needs a different setting to display Windows or any of the SAMBA shares - especially if its version of Linux / NAS server needs / uses SMB1

    You still need to set the SMB1 option in Add features to windows of course.

    also in the samba config file ensure this line is in the global section


    [global]
    max protocol = NT1 <===+++++++++++++++++

    (Not client max protocol !!)

    what this actually does (apart from working !!! ) I have no idea but it fixed 4 Linux machines which suddenly stopped listing Samba shares under network. I saw the suggestion on some weird website - have no idea of the link though - must have been imbibing some of those nice malted fluids kari likes. !!!

    Works also with ubuntu guests as well as Hosts and Centos guests and hosts. haven't messed around with other Linux distros as I don't really use them.

    The list does rely on vendors adding themselves to it though.
    I have an old Seagate Goflex Home NAS drive which isn't on the list but, as far as I can make out, needs SMB1 to work.
    (Leastways, I've not managed to connect after I tried disabling SMB1.)
    But unless Seagate add themselves, they won't be on that Microsoft page.

    Windows 10 ADK no support for smb1?

    Hello, everybody. Paragon Diskmanager uses Window PE for its rescue disk. I have an old but good NAS-Server (iomega) installed, which apparently uses smb1. There is no way to connect to the NAS Server with WIN10-PE. Does someone know whether there is a
    way to configure Windows 10 ADK for smb1? Thank you!
