Are you thinking about the authentication problem to Windows when a
stricter registry setting is chosen for server name hardening?

This involves populating the ntlmv2 response area of an NTLMSSP blob
with the  "Target Name" attribute ie missing MsvAvTargetNamefield and
maybe also
MsvAvFlags.   These (the target name field in particular) are required
when Windows servers set the registry parm SmbServerNameHardeningLevel
to 2

See e.g. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/security-policy-settings/microsoft-network-server-server-spn-target-name-validation-level

Yes - definitely need to try with various cases (krb5 and ntlmssp in
SPNEGO) to various servers (Macs, NetApp, Windows, Azure, Samba,ksmbd
