I'm still researching this on my end.

[MS-SMB2] 22.214.171.124 "SMB2_CREATE_CONTEXT Request Values" enumerates the known context names and identifies 0x9CCBCF9E04C1E643980E158DA1F6EC83 as SVHDX_OPEN_DEVICE_CONTEXT. [MS-SMB2] further has the server processing rule for at 126.96.36.199.14 "Handling the SVHDX_OPEN_DEVICE_CONTEXT Create Context" that describe "If IsSharedVHDSupported is FALSE, the server MUST fail the request with STATUS_INVALID_DEVICE_REQUEST" for "servers that implement the SMB 3.0.2 or SMB 3.1.1 dialect".
That's also my reading of the errata+spec, which is why I opened this case (i.e. I agree that ignoring the SVHDX is not according to the spec and I was hoping the spec is wrong).
One missing piece for me is what a Windows server does - does it always support RSVD by definition or is it configuration-dependent (because it needs a SCSI backend to which it tunnels the SCSI commands). And if it's configuration-dependent, how the system behaves when there's no RSVD.
