SMB is Dead, Long Live SMB :: James Kehr

by Volker Weber

Not beating around the bush. You have to switch off SMBv1 support. Read the full story.

Your immediate consequence: you can no longer use your Sonos Music Library, since this is one of the companies who have been asleep at the wheel for a decade.

So the interesting question is:
Why does Sonos insists on SMBv1?
Maybe the space is to tight in the small flash chips of the old boxes?

Might give us some hope that the new versions after the great divide will support newer versions of SMB...

What a nice write up!

Simon, das glaube ich nicht. Ist einfach ein Überbleibsel aus den Anfängen.

So you think the Sonos music library will be effectively be permanently killed due to lack of SMB V1 support, Volker?

That would be a significant loss of functionality for some users. Sonos will have even more unhappy bunnies... Or have I missed something?

No, you can continue to use SMBv1. But you should not.

Volker Weber, 2020-02-27

There haven multiple attempts but Sonos does not care. See for instance:

As an alternative to an SMBv1 share there is Plex which can be added as a music service in Sonos. However, Plex requires a local server such as a Synology NAS. It wont run on a FritzBox which is sufficient for a local music library based on SMBv1.

And with Plex you overcome also the track limit, get some addons like recently added music, remote access.
