  1. I refer you to my post here: Search of SMB shares not working (MacOS client) This this solution improved my experience on macOS working with files on Unraid. I too experienced much frustration shifting away from AFP to SMB as the experience seemed much slower. However, with the right configuration changes (both client-side and server-side) I discovered SMB can be as good, if not superior, to AFP. I hope it helps you out.
  2. macOS Finder SMB connections to three Unraid (Unraid OS plus) servers on local network (Uraid 6.10-rc3 and Uraid 6.10-rc4) have been rock-solid reliable for me. Several days testing with numerous transfers of 10s folders, 100s files, 2-40 GB total (mostly MP4 files) at a time.
  3. I have experience significant performance improvement using macOS Finder connecting to Unraid SMB shares by applying configuration changes detailed here and (most importantly) here. I hope this helps.
  4. Thanks for reporting on your experience Hoopster. Am interested if your experience supports IPMI while Plex docker container makes use of 2288G Quick Sync Video for hardware transcoding. Reading through this thread suggests it should work but will be interested to learn about this for your build (if indeed use case aligns). Thanks.
  5. I notice you are connecting from macOS FInder. Suggestion here and here (same thread) might help.
  6. Thanks for the thanks. The Unraid "Samba extra configuration" change has been well worthwhile but the real "gold nugget" in the KB450114 – MacOS Samba Optimization article is the section "SMB Signing (MacOS 10.11.4 and Before)". I highlight it here because it has been just soooo good for me. This client-side (ie on macOS) configuration change is key for speeding up SMB operations on macOS Finder connecting to Unraid.
  7. You can check the file exists and its contents typing the following command into manOS Terminal: less /etc/nsmb.conf And it should work fine with any new-ish macOS. I'm running macOS 12.1
  8. Sorry to read problem not yet solved. Did you also apply the SMB Signing (MacOS 10.11.4 and Before) tip on the 45Drives page? Well worth doing on the macOS computer to improve SMB performance. These commands typed in using Terminal on macOS. echo "[default]" >> /etc/nsmb.conf echo "signing_required=no" >> /etc/nsmb.conf …and restart macOS for changes to take effect.

  10. 6.5.54 Early Release available 8 hours ago. Note this is Early Release. I expect the General Release/Official (stable) will be available soon-ish. I can’t comment on vulnerability mentioned. I’ve installed it on my Unifi Dream Machine.
  11. I'm sorry. It seems I misunderstood the problem. I am curious and will follow this thread to learn more.
  12. I too for a long time was very frustrated with very slow SMB connections between macOS and Unraid. I had several (somewhat unsuccessful attempts) at reading Samba documentation and adding various parameter combinations. Then I stumbled across a solution that provides excellent (much faster!) result. See here… My Unraid "Samba extra configuration" optimised (and working well) accessing Unraid shares from macOS Monterey 12.0.1
  13. There are bugs in samba version 4.15.0 included in Unraid 6.10.0-rc2 impacting SMB connections from macOS. Bugs noted in samba version 4.15.1 release notes. I have reverted to 6.10.0-rc1 and wait (with calm patience) for a future release of Unraid containing newer samba version. See this post for a bit more info on my experience optimizing Unraid samba for macOS: Unraid 6.10.0-rc1 and Unraid 6.9.2 both seem to provide me with reliable SMB connections for macOS (including Monterey 12.0.1)
  14. Below I include my Unraid (Version: 6.10.0-rc1) "Samba extra configuration". This configuration is working well for me accessing Unraid shares from macOS Monterey 12.0.1 I expect these configuration parameters will work okay for Unraid 6.9.2. The "veto" commands speed-up performance to macOS by disabling Finder features (labels/tags, folder/directory views, custom icons etc.) so you might like to include or exclude these lines per your requirements. Note, there are problems with samba version 4.15.0 in Unraid 6.10.0-rc2 causing unexpected dropped SMB connections… (behavior like this should be anticipated in pre-release) but fixes expected in future releases. This configuration is based on a Samba configuration recommended for macOS users from 45Drives here: KB450114 – MacOS Samba Optimization. #unassigned_devices_start #Unassigned devices share includes include = /tmp/unassigned.devices/smb-settings.conf #unassigned_devices_end [global] vfs objects = catia fruit streams_xattr fruit:nfs_aces = no fruit:zero_file_id = yes fruit:metadata = stream fruit:encoding = native spotlight backend = tracker [data01] path = /mnt/user/data01 veto files = /._*/.DS_Store/ delete veto files = yes spotlight = yes My Unraid share is "data01". Give attention to modifying the configuration for your particular shares (and other requirements). I hope providing this might help others to troubleshoot and optimize SMB for macOS.
