Hi experts, I seem to be running into problems with samba shares not being visible from windows machines in an Azure environment.

I have two SLES boxes one 11 SP4 and the other 12 SP2 the latter has shares that once enabled for guest access are visible from windows machines via their ip address. However the 11 SP4 machine's shares enabled in Yast the exact same way are not visible at all.

I've read this might be due to windows server 2016 having smbv1.1 switched off as default and that SLES 12 isn't affected as it has a later SAMBA release.

Can anyone shed any light on this?
