Re: [Samba] NAS SMB server not accepting packets > 65k size. Does SMB2->Negotiate_Protocol_Response->Max_Write_Size = 65536 Matters?

>= 65536?

That dictates the max read/write size supported by server, client is expected to honor that. So answer is No. NetApp filer does not support reads/write larger than 64K

Yes, Only requirement is the response has to be signed, which assures that the response is coming from the server itself.

    Though these are filters on NAS Server:

    Max_Read_Size = 8388608
    
    
    My queries:
    1. Can server accept/send more than 65K sized packet, if
    SMB2->Negotiate_Protocol_Response->Max_Write_Size = 65536, Max_Read_Size
    = 65536?
        Again, on NAS, On cifs-mounted shares packets > 65k succeed to get
    transferred..
    2. If SMB-server sends STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED for
    FSCTL_VALIDATE_NEGOTIATE_INFO, Is it expected to carry the transaction
    further?
