Switches to SMB 1 on OS X 10.9 or later.

Overview

SMBconf switches to SMB 1 on OS X 10.9 or later. OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) brought SMB 2 as the default network protocol; with OS X 10.10 (Yosemite), SMB 3 was added. If you face issues connecting to your NAS, or connections to Windows file servers don't work as expected (e.g., inability to rename files or folders), it may help to switch back to the slower but more reliable SMB 1.

What's new in SMBconf

Version 3.2:
  • Added: compatibility with macOS 10.14 (Mojave)

I can confirm this works on El Capitan 10.11.2 My user had an issue with our Windows 2012 file server network share. After upgrading from Yosemite to El Capitan, she would connect to the server ok, open a bunch of subfolders, and frequently throughout the day, Finder would kick her back to the beginning shared folder. This forces her to open the subfolders again and again. Apple support suggested disjoining/rejoining domain, replacing profile, and recovering the OS. We did all but the last to no avail. SMBConf works just fine, she's on SMB1, and I will revisit the problem later if they come out with an update that fixes this problem.

Does not appear to make any difference for Windows connectivity to High Sierra... not one bit. Don't waste your time. Install SMBUp instead.

This works in Sierra as well. I forced deleted the SMB-restriction Apple implemented in Sierra, due to the fact of a security bug in Windows. I could not connect to a Windows share anymore and Acrobat Distiller crashed. By installing/using this app, with SMB1 my connection and Distiller both work again.

Doesn't connecting as cifs:// instead of smb:// do the same thing?

Is this utility an alternative to SMBUp or something else?

I'd like to rate it, but it doesn't do a stinkin' thing on my new Mini, running OS 10.10. It appears in the dock for about a half-second before disappearing; "nsmb.conf" not created...
