what versions of CIFS are supported?


Mar 5, 2019
I try mount as CIFS on Proxmox LAN disk from Windows Server 2003
In Add CIFS will be correctly vieved in Share all shared folders, but Add end with error Timeout .

Windows Server use SMB protocol version 1, is this version of SMB supported in proxmox or
where to find an error?
Windows 2003 has been EOL for quite some time, and SMB version 1 has quite many security problems, which is why it is not enabled by default in the linux kernel (and hence in PVE) anymore.
You can configure it by mounting the share via '/etc/fstab' and then integrating it as directory storage.

But please do consider upgrading to a recent version!
