Description Stefan Gohmann univentionstaff 2013-08-28 08:18:01 CEST
The value for "server max protocol" should be set to SMB2 for new installed UCS systems.
Comment 1 Stefan Gohmann univentionstaff 2013-08-28 09:11:44 CEST
The default has already changed with 4.1rc2:

root@master151:~# samba -V
Version 4.1.0rc2-UNKNOWN-Debian
root@master151:~# testparm  -vv 2>/dev/null| grep 'protocol'

        server max protocol = SMB3
        server min protocol = LANMAN1
        client max protocol =
        client min protocol =

root@master501:~# samba -V
Version 4.0.3
root@master501:~# testparm  -vv 2>/dev/null| grep 'protocol'

        max protocol = NT1
        min protocol = CORE
Comment 2 Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2013-08-28 17:47:53 CEST
testparm.samba4 outputs SMB3 for 4.0.3 as well. I checked with a Windows7 client and see in the logs: "Selected protocol SMB2_10". Windows8 would probably negotiate SMB3.

For samba 3.6.8 testparm says NT1 and the Windows7 client test confirmed this.
Comment 3 Stefan Gohmann univentionstaff 2013-09-09 08:46:32 CEST
SMB2 is set fpr Samba 3 and Samba 4 for new installation. For updates from 3.1 to 3.2 NT1 is used.

Code: r43783 + r43784
