I think there is only a partial support of SMB3 in samba4. There is a 
document on samba wiki with an update on SMB2/2.1/3 support [1]. The 
document relates to samba3, but I think it should be similar to the 
support in samba4 since the smbd part is shared.

I tried to implement windows 2012 roaming disk profile last month, which 
required SMB3 support, and it didn't work out with the latest 4.1 serie.
