I'm seeing conflicting information on the internet regarding Samba support for multichannel.

Some articles are saying that you have to put the interfaces in pairs on different networks/subnets. Quote: "at this time this is the only method Samba supports for multichannel."

Is this still true for the latest version of Samba (4.12)? In Windows Server you don't have to put the network pairs on different subnets at all, it just works out of the box when all the NICs are on the same subnet.
