No, no one else is working on this I'm afaid. As I add
new tests I usually make sure they're SMB2+ only, as
that's what we want to target going forward.

Best advice I can give is to move them over one
at a time, probably starting with the isolated

As you move them, take the opportunity to clean
up some of the old failure paths - ensuring they
start and end with a clean and empty directory
tree. Some of our flaky tests have been caused
by 'old' data being left from a previous test.
