Then there's nothing to disable. Is there a problem with CEC? debug log (wiki)

Just my interest - are there any news on smb-sharing?

It works for me with (almost) latest build #0421 - using only smb.conf but it's not possible to add any shares from libreelec (where WORKGROUP is set).

When setting client max protocol = SMB1, SMB Shares from Workgroup are possible again.

I don't really care cause I'm using a sql database, but are there any differences in using smb3 or smb1?

My server is a WHS 2011 which is using smb 2.1 i think, so smb3 is not even supposed to work...

Would be nice if someone could bring some light into this whole thing.

I'm aware of two issues with Samba4:

1) Anonymous access is broken/not supported by Kodi and Samba4, so configure your Windows shares with a username and password, then set the username/password in passwords.xml.
2) There are occasional GUI lockups due to some sort of race condition, no solution as yet.

If your server doesn't properly support SMB3 then you'll need to force SMB1 (or maybe SMB2?) as your maximum client protocol. Perhaps eventually this will be handled by a GUI setting. We're currently forcing the max version otherwise Samba4 will continue to connect clients using NT1 which is a much older protocol (supported by Windows NT). SMB2/SMB3 should result in better performance than NT1/SMB1 due to improved async io.

Microsoft are deprecating SMB1 and warning/encouraging users to stop using it as it's a security can of worms.

Thank you Milhouse for your fast response and explanation!

Would you say, that nfs is the better way to go?
I think as a normal user you would not see any difference in performance using smb or nfs?

WHS 2011 supports nfs, so I could switch from smb to nfs without problems

NFS is usually better (less CPU overhead) than SMB, particularly SMB1.

You might not notice the reduced CPU overhead on x86, but it's something that is quite noticeable on lower powered devices (RPi etc.).
