Hi all,

A - I thought badlock mitigation was about encrypting SMB traffic, at least
most part of it. And this encryption of most part of data transfer could
(or should) lower performances.

It seems I was wrong: smallest part (something like commands) are encrypted
but not SMB traffic (ie file transfer). This for SMB protocol prior to SMB3
(which comes with windows 8).

B - According to what I read, new options added into smb.conf with Samba
versions meant to solve Badlock issue are enough by default to solve the

Is that true?
