The Demise of SMB 1 in the Windows Stack

With the passing of support for Windows 2003, something else quietly fades into the background… Support for SMB 1.

My good friend Matt McSpirit has an issue with a file copy between servers in a datacenter. While daydreaming of it’s completion – his mind wanders and encounters three members of the engineering team who supported the SMB 1 stack on Windows Server.

Now that Windows Server 2003 is end of life, you should check out the goodness of SMB 3.x and above at http://aka.ms/serverstorage and http://aka.ms/smb

Thanks goes out to Ned (@nerdpyle), Greg, Dave and Matt (@MattMcSpirit) for helping put this one together!
