SMBv2-v3 on Mobile Access File Share (and not only SMBv1 - CIFS)

I've found some unclear information regarding server_message_block versions supported on mobile-access-blade file-share functionality.

What is unclear? We have "A file share defines a collection of files (...) such as SMB for Windows" in the MobileAccess Admin Guide R77 or in the sk104577 ATRG: Mobile Access Blade .

Even the sk111097 Slow upload speed of files via Mobile Access File Share (CIFS for example) says "CIFS for example".


BUT referring the sk112202 File Shares using SMBv2/SMBv3 cannot be accessed using the Mobile Access Blade File Share application : Mobile Access only support SMBv1 (formerly CIFS) and not SMBv2 nor SMBv3 (on any version and any platform).

Even in the ATRG, we have the picture bellow:


So, could we:

  • Be more accurate and say that only SMBv1 (CIFS) is supported on Mobile Access File Share functionality
  • support SMBv2 or SMBv3 ?


I've asked yesterday secureknowledge team to understand if there is a plan to support such versions.
