Hi, I see that the latest My Cloud firmware (4.04.05-101) runs Samba 4.0.0rc5, which supports SMB3. However, out of the box, it is configured to use SMB2.
I’ve changed smb.conf to allow SMB3, and it seems to be working, but can anyone speculate why WD set it to use the slower SMB2?
I was really hoping that the 4.x firmware would have updated Samba to something more recent, but of course that didn’t happen. I use the My Cloud as a destination for CrashPlan backups, so my PC keeps SMB connections open for days, if not weeks at a time. The Samba logs show periodic dropped connections, so I was hoping a newer version of Samba would fix it. Perhaps using SMB3 will help.
