Description

Apple is going to drop AFP on OS X Maverics and will support SMB2 from Microsoft. Will Freenas have this support?

SMB2 provide better security and is alot faster. (Not CIFS)

History

#2 Updated by Mathieu Simon over 4 years ago

According to the first 2 links Mavericks is only going to prefer SMB2 over AFP instead of OS X until 10.8.x. It's no going to drop AFP yet.

Apples' own implementation SMBX will support SMB2, that's the important thing.
[[FreeNAS]] has been shipping with Samba 3.6 - bringing [[support - since 803-RELEASE-p1 [[httpsourceforgenetprojectsfreenasfilesFreeNAS-831RELEASEREADME]] abour releases.

Technically [[FreeNAS]] does support SMB2 today (not SMB2.1 or the latest 3.0 though), the question is rather what version is currently set to default. - I don't have a [[FreeNAS]] box yet available but that's at least for relaxing the bug severity. The SMB version can be set in smb.conf at least.

#3 Updated by Matthew Trent over 4 years ago

SMB2 was turned on by default on my [[FreeNAS]] 9.1-beta install. Works great.

Quoted articles refer to the CIFS server. SMB2 and SMB1 is supported by the client server which should support replacing off of AFP on OS X Mavericks.
