Debian 9, SAMBA broke my Shares — July 17, 2017

Debian 9, SAMBA broke my Shares

I updated my workstation to Debian 9 (stretch) today and immediately after could no longer connect to any of my Windows fileshares.

Guessing this was probably down to changes we made on the Windows servers that disabled SMB v1 it took a little bit of googling to get things working again.

Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf with admin rights and add the following lines into the [global] section.

client max protocol = SMB3
client ipc max protocol = NT1

Save the file and restart the Samba service.

$ sudo systemctl restart samba
