    Win10 stopped listing home network machines through SMB2 protocol.


    A week or two ago (around NewYear 2019) my Win10 based laptop stopped seeing local network machines using SMB2 protocol. Accessing shares by explicit machine names works fine.


    Before that I had no problems with listing active machine names. Nothing was changed from my side; but windows 10 updates itself without prompting, or telling what it plans to update... so probably it was damaged from Microsoft side.


    SMB1 was disabled long ago.

    There is a forced master browser NAS/Router with SAMBA working 24x7. SMB2 protocol is forced for shares. Higher SMB versions are not supported there. Domain controller features are not used - only master browser and WINS(nmbd). Access is based on user name/password in all the network. DNS (dnsmasq) is also configured for local network domain suffix. i.e. Both WINS and DNS fulfill dynamic LAN name resolution with no problems.


    In windows 10 SMB2 seems enabled, but unable to get network resource listing from SAMBA master browser.


    PS C:\windows\system32> Get-SmbServerConfiguration | Select EnableSMB2Protocol
    EnableSMB2Protocol
    ------------------
    True


    When installing SMB1 client on WIn10, and allowing SMB1 in SAMBA, the network machine listing revives. But still, it is not correct, since SMB1 is deprecated and not supported by default in Windows anymore.


    Is there a way to bring SMB2 LAN machine listing back to life on Windows 10?

    :)

    I admit I haven't had time to read through all the thread, but in case anyone wants to know, a solution is found.

    Enable both SMB1 and SMB2 using PowerShell ISE. In y copy of Windows 10 I had Powershell and Powershell ISE installed by default (10 Pro).
    Powershell ISE has the cmdapplet required.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2696547


    Follow the steps to enable both SMB1 and SMB2 and all works again. Looks like Win10 totally disables SMB1 by default with the latest builds, stopping a lot of Linux based machines showing in particular, but also stopping some windows machines showing up.

    No restart I needed to test it, just refresh the "network" page after running the applet commands

    You'll restart the machine at least once.
    Save any work, close open programs.
    Any unsaved work will be lost.

    The run command quickly gets you to Network Connections

    WinKey+R ncpa.cpl
