[Samba] Is it possible to re-share a SMB2 filesystem for SMB1 clients?

Hi everyone,

I'm having the following situation:

I need to migrate all SMB file services to a new appliance that only 
supports the SMB2+ protocol. Unfortunately, there are still some very 
old Linux clients ("modinfo cifs" says version 1.60) that do only speak 
SMB1 and need to access these shares after the migration.

Is it possible to have a Linux with a modern Samba implementation 
"re-sharing" the SMB2 shares for SMB1 clients?

Kind regards!
