Some users have reported problems using a Windows Server using SMB. This is caused by a change that Apple made in the operating system. To fix this, you need to force the login to use SMB1 protocols.
To force all connections to be SMB1:
- Open a Terminal window
- Paste in the following line followed by the return key (should be all on one line):
echo “[default]” >> ~/Library/Preferences/nsmb.conf; echo “smb_neg=smb1_only” >> ~/Library/Preferences/nsmb.conf
What the command does:
- Creates a file called nsmb.conf in your home directory at the path ~/Library/Preferences/nsmb.conf.
- Adds directives to force SMB connections to use the SMB1 protocol.
How to remove the workaround:
- Open a terminal window
- Paste in the following at the prompt and then hit the return button:
You need to do this for each user.
This problem has been fixed in the upcoming PowerCADD 9.1.4
