Anyone got 2012 R2 user profile disks working with SMB3 on NetApp cDOT? I know it requires SMB3 but it doesn't seem to work when setting up on cDOT 😞
I've got a SMB3.0 enabled CIFS server, I know that it works as it is currently used for Hyper-V SMB 3.0
A share has been added for UPD, as a test I set everyone full for share and NTFS permissions
I go into server manager and add the share - making sure I use the CIFS server name rather than an alias (beleive this is a requirement for SMB3 to work)
Tried enabling and disabling "Enable continuous availability" just to check that option out
When adding I get
Could not create the template VHD. Error Message: The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA).
Doing some research this is due to SMB3 support - lots of people say setup a full 2012 R2 share, which I can do via a LUN but i'd rather not if possible.
Is the NetApp CIFS compatible with 2012 R2 UPD's? Has anyone got this working?
