Is That Share SMB1?

Andy Mallon shows us how to tell if a particular Windows share is using SMB1:

In case you’ve missed it (though, if you’re a data professional or other IT pro, you must live under a rock if you’ve missed it), SMBv1 should never ever be used. Alas, some shares out there still exist & use it.

Recent Windows updates have tried to turn off SMBv1 , alas Microsoft’s Ned Pyle (twitter|blog) still maintains a long list of products that still need SMBv1.

As a DBA, you probably don’t spend too much time managing file shares, or worrying about SMB versions, but you should be asking yourself:

Does my backup target use SMBv1?

If it does, you should fix that.
