20.5 NetApp Net Folder Server Test Connection Fails

Problem: Clicking the Test Connection option when creating a Net Folder Server for a NetApp device causes the following error to be logged in /var/opt/novell/filr/log/smbclient.log.: Could not retrieve case sensitivity flag: NT_STATUS_REVISION MISMATCH.

NetApp ONTAP versions earlier than 8.3.x have only limited support for the SMB v2 protocol. Nevertheless, NetApp sets the default protocol level to SMB v2.

If your NetApp devices are running an ONTAP version earlier than 8.3.x, you must set the protocol level to SMB v1 on the NetApp devices. Filr will then use SMB v1 for connecting and communicating with the devices.
