Upgraded to OS5 today: 5.04.114. Now I cannot access the device from my Windows 10 machine. Right before the upgrade, I could access the device through the file explorer.
I have a second WDMYCLOUD that I am still able to access from my Windows 10 machine.
I tried all the things on the internet but I continue to get SAMBA, CIFS: Authentication for user [user] has FAILED.
On Windows, it will attempt to open the directory but will ask for a password for the user. If I put in a fake user name it will fail and not ask for a password (because they don’t exist). So, I assume that when I put a username that the SAMBA recognizes, it then asks for the password but then the password fails. If there is some sort of secret password other than the one I use to log into the dashboard, I don’t know it.
Below is a list of different things I have tried. I would try one thing at a time, then revert it back after it failed.
Things I tried on the PR2100:
I have tried changing the password.
I have tried changing the SMB3 to all the other combinations.
I created a new, second user and password and attempted to use this new user.
I have created test folders and test users and test passwords and test groups with users added.
I have double triple checked that the folders are set to ‘Public’ and I have access for the user.
I turned ‘Public’ off and on.
I clicked probably every box under “Windows Services.”
I did a ‘System Only’ restore.
I have SSH’d into the PR2100 to make sure SAMBA is running. Ran ‘testparm,’ it printed all the public drives and such. Says a bunch of stuff I don’t really understand, attached below.
Rebooted a ton.
Things attempted in Windows 10:
I have checked and rechecked my credentials and login info.
Attempted to login using the Local Account “admin” username and password (about 100 times).
I have gone into the adapter settings and messed with the NetBIOS settings.
I have added regedit keys.
I have disabled the firewall.
I tried following many online tutorials on how to configure a network drive.
Seeing as though I cannot go back to OS3, this is a big, big issue and I really need to find a solution. Feeling a bit duped into upgrading! This breaks my ability to add large files to the server. This is a big problem.
Edit: plex still works. I can access the device from the web and my phone app.
Update: I was able to access the device in Windows 10 File Explorer on my Laptop. Still don’t know what is causing the failure on the Desktop machine. Looking through the laptops settings to see if I can find the difference causing the issue.
Solution: Found the issue. For some reason I needed to change a register Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\LmCompatibilityLevel to 4

WARNING: socket options = IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=4096000 SO_SNDBUF=4096000 This warning is printed because you set one of the following options: SO_SNDBUF, SO_RCVBUF, SO_SNDLOWAT, SO_RCVLOWAT Modern server operating systems are tuned for high network performance in the majority of situations; when you set 'socket options' you are overriding those settings. Linux in particular has an auto-tuning mechanism for buffer sizes (SO_SNDBUF, SO_RCVBUF) that will be disabled if you specify a socket buffer size. This can potentially cripple your TCP/IP stack. Getting the 'socket options' correct can make a big difference to your performance, but getting them wrong can degrade it by just as much. As with any other low level setting, if you must make changes to it, make small changes and test the effect before making any large changes.
