Some windows 8 users are facing a problem to access the NetApp CIFS Shared Folders.
The following error is shown: "System error 2148073478," "extended error,"
It seems that Windows 8 and Windows 2012 Server use the SMB v3.0 (by default) which requires signing negotiation.
I've found a simple workaround to disable the signing negotiation in the client
I've heard that this error does not happen in the "Data OnTape Version 8.2".
Does anyone tried to make the upgrade?
Netapp current configuration
Version: NetApp Release 8.1.1 7-Mode
CIFS: SMB Disabled
Thank you in advance,
I could be wrong, but it's my understanding that SMB 3.0 isn't fully supported until 8.2. Also, 8.1.1 is very buggy to begin with, so you should look to upgrade
Your last statement lists CIFS as SMB disabled, do you mean signing?
I will try to make the upgrade and share the results.
PS: When I said "CIFS: SMB Disabled" actually I Would like to mean "CIFS: SMB signing Disabled".
Also, refer to this thread - https://communities.netapp.com/thread/32808
Doesn't appear SMB 3.0 will ever be supported in 7-mode. It's only for cDOT.
