RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
.The SMB1 protocol has been disabled in the Samba server and client utilities by default In Samba 4.11, the default values of the `server min protocol` and `client min protocol` parameters have been changed from `NT1` to `SMB2_02` because the server message block version 1 (SMB1) protocol is deprecated. If you have not set these parameters in the `/etc/samba/smb.conf` file: * Clients that only support SMB1 are no longer able to connect to the Samba server. * Samba client utilities, such as `smbclient`, and the `libsmbclient` library fail to connect to servers that only support SMB1. Red Hat recommends to not use the SMB1 protocol. However, if your environment requires SMB1, you can manually re-enable the protocol. To re-enable SMB1 on a Samba server: * Add the following setting to the `/etc/samba/smb.conf` file: ---- server min protocol = NT1 ---- * Restart the `smb` service: ---- # systemctl restart smb ---- To re-enable SMB1 for Samba client utilities and the `libsmbclient` library: * Add the following setting to the `/etc/samba/smb.conf` file: ---- client min protocol = NT1 ---- * Restart the `smb` service: ---- # systemctl restart smb ---- Note that the SMB1 protocol will be removed in a future Samba release.

Description of problem:
From Samba 4.11.0, the SMB1 protocol is disabled defaultly. I think we need a doc to show this. 
The method to enable SMB1 in RHEL-8.2 is add "min protocol=NT1" in smb.conf global section.

Marc, what is the best way to document this, just update the RHEL 8.2 docs?

Comment 2 Marc Muehlfeld 2020-01-08 08:56:33 UTC
I would suggest:

1) Adding a short section "Configuring the minimum SMB protocol version supported by a Samba server" to the Samba server docs (https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html-single/deploying_different_types_of_servers/). This section could mention the new default in RHEL >=8.2 and provide a procedure how to set "server min protocol".

2) Adding a 8.2 Release Note that tells the user about the new default. We can either list the new default in the Samba rebase RN or, if it's important enough, write a separate RN just about the new default. I would prefer the latter, because it may break several old clients, such as scanner devices which store files on a Samba share.

The docs about mounting an SMB share (https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/managing_file_systems/assembly_mounting-an-smb-share-on-red-hat-enterprise-linux_managing-file-systems) should be sufficient. For example, "7.7. Frequently used mount options" already mentions the "vers" mount option.

Andreas, what do you think about my suggestions?

Sounds like a perfect plan.
