Hello Shivappa,

I'm able to get only SMB2.1 packets using wireshark after fileshare access from my windows 7 machine. And not SMB3 packets.

This result is as expected because windows 7 machine only support to SMB 2.1,
SMB3 is not included.
Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 or later would support SMB3.

Samba-4.1.4 is supporting SMB3 also. So how can I confirm that I'm supporting SMB3.

Wireshark negotiate response dialect column is a good way to confirm,
another is powershell command 'Get-SmbConnection',
please refer to following link:
