SMB for MAC OSX

Is anyone else having major issues with Mac OS X 10.9.x via SMB2 CIFS...? 

 

Finder is a major drag with upwards of 30 - 50 seconds to load the content. 

 

 

DOT Version is 8.2.1 7 Mode.

Hi,

 

Please upgrade to 8.2.4, because there are many issues fixed.

Let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thanks

Re: SMB for MAC OSX

What issues were fixed? Any Documentation around it? 

Re: SMB for MAC OSX

Hello,

 

For example following issues were fixed in 8.2.3x:

 

- client fails to open/save word document via SMB3 / ID 863246

- widelink access via SMB / ID 642665

- some performance issues

 

Did you upgrade and try the test again ?

 

Best regards

Re: SMB for MAC OSX

OS X behaves differently when you open the connection with cifs:// or smb://

try both and use the one which is working better for you.

Re: SMB for MAC OSX

That's right, but be careful if you use cifs instead of smb in finder.

 

CIFS:// makes only a SMB1 connection to the share and SMB:// negotiate the right (maximum) version if the client has no configuration entry with a forced version.

 

The usable SMB version can also be configured on the vServer (SVM) in cDOT.
