MacOS Sierra and the red bang

Carl Howell
Ever since MacOS Sierra came out, we've had quite a few complaints of users getting access denied while accessing CIFS shares on all of our 7-Mode(8.1.4P9) filers. I've seen this behavior myself where you connect to a share and many if not all of the folders will have a red bang on them. Sometimes the red bangs will just disappear, and sometimes you have to reboot/reconnect your Mac to get them to disappear. 

Has anybody else seen this or have a recommendation on how to resolve this?

Thanks,

--Carl

Hi Carl,

Have you tried forcing Macs to connect via SMB 1?

Use:
cifs://yourservername (forces SMB 1.0)

Instead of:

smb://yourservername (tries SMB 2.x)

Not the greatest solution but usually clears up Mac connection issues to CIFS shares.
