Server OS: CentOS 6.9, all latest patches.
Client OS: Windows 7 Professional, all latest patches

Not sure whether this is a bug or whether I am doing something incorrect, please advice of the latter.

When I UNSET "min protocol" or set to "min protocol = SMB1" all is fine and I can see every machine, device and printers on the network.

When I SET "min protocol = SMB2" I get nothing, all network folders are empty, even when browsing as "root" or "domain admin" I cannot see anything.

I use loads of scripts on my windows own client (my workstation) do do my daily deed, many of those scripts use "Net session" or "Net view" - I cannot use these scripts when I have set the minimum protocol to SMB2 - it does not reveal anything on the network.

I also cannot browse (like editing remote registries etc) - which makes life a little tricky.

I also believe in security, so simply switching back ain't easy for me.

So is this a bug?

Sorry forgot to add.

This has been a problem for me for a while but I waited till I had some time to upgrade the server from 3.6.X to 4.1.X because I thought it maybe 3.6.x related.

But the upgrade did not change a thing.
