    How compatible is Solaris 11.4 with smb 3.1.1

    Andrew Watkins

      Hi,

       

      I have been playing with smb on solaris 11.4. It is a follow on from another discussion  Windows SMB client performance issues

      So, I thought I would do some more test so I loaded Ubunta on VirtualBox.

       

      Solaris 11.4 Server:

      Solaris# sharectl get smb |grep protocol

      client_maxprotocol=1

      server_minprotocol=2

      server_maxprotocol=3

      Ubuntu mount Windows 2016 Server share:

           mount.cifs -o vers=3.0  works OK

      Ubuntu mount Solaris 11.4 Server SMB share:

           mount.cifs -o vers=3.0  works FAILS

           mount.cifs -o vers=2.1  works OK

           mount.cifs -o vers=2.0  works OK

      Ubuntu mount Solaris 11.4 Server SAMBA share:

           mount.cifs -o vers=3.0  works OK

      Been looking at the documentation but not find much except

       

      Note - The Oracle Solaris OS provides a Server Message Block (SMB) protocol server and client implementations. The SMB server implementation includes support for numerous SMB dialects including SMB 3.0, SMB 2.1, SMB 2.0, and SMB 1. The SMB client implementation includes support for SMB 1.

       

      Thanks

          I watch your question from beginning and cause not answer so far , i will put my 2 cents:

          Did you tried playing with smb sighning requirements ?Solaris 11.4 have them disabled on default, windows server opposite, don't know about Ubuntu but there's a great chance for it to follow Windows defaults. Smb sighning use different property for smb2 and smb3 .

          "Sharectl" is the tool for the task.
