GeneralI think I've found a SMB1 solution ... Pin

mveOriginalGriff23-Aug-20 0:00 
Despite having \\SGNAS in my Hosts file, my desktop is fine, but my Surface keeps losing SMB1 devices completely, via IP or domain name.
This was getting frustrating ...

Then I found this - ProviderFlags ([Samba] Re: msdfs root problems even after a reboot?[^]) and it seems to be working so far:
1) Open Regedit and accept UAC.
2) Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network
   You should see a list of mapped drives as individual keys:
       A
       B
       M
       P
       S
       V
       W
       X
3) Open each drive twig and add a new DWORD32 Key named "ProviderFlags".
3) Set the value to 1 (you can just press ENTER to open the edit box once it's highlighted)
4) Reboot.


With the domain / IP mapped in Hosts*, all seems fine and indeed considerably faster than it was before the 2004 upgrade!


* Easy to do:
1) WINKEY, then type "notepad" - right click and select "Run as Administrator"
2) Accept UAC
3) Open the file "%systemRoot%\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts" 
4) Add your mapping: "192.168.0.11 \\SGNAS #Seagate BlackArmour 16TB" is mine
   IP first, then at least one space
   Domain next, I use the \\ prefix but I'm not sure it's needed. (If it ain't broke ...)
   Anything after "#" is a comment.



[edit]
I've written this up as a tip: Finding my network shares on SMB1 drives after the Windows 10 2004 update.[^] so it survives a little longer than this thread will!
