Windows 10 and CIFS/SMB/Samba issues

Found a couple of posts indicating that 1511 is having issues with network discovery:

Synology Forum • View topic – Windows 10 Version 1511 and SMB3:

Hi All,

I wanted to provide an update on this thread to let you know that we are currently investigating this issue and I am working with the product group to determine root cause. The issue we are investigating is in regards to ‘Network Discovery’ not locating devices on the network.

The issue appears that Windows 10 is not broadcasting out an NetBT or RAP requests when searching for the devices on the network and only uses WSD protocol. If you navigate to Explorer > Network and changed to Details view and then add ‘Discovery Method’ to the column bar you should see that if you are discovering any devices they are more than likely only being found via WSD.

    I notice that this issue(been going on for many Builds) seems to have been resolved for me, at least, hopefully for everyone in Build 1601 RS1 11099.1000.

    Now if we could get them to resolve the Task Manager issue of not running Windows Defender, which was broken in Build 1512 RS1 11082.1000 and reported in FeedBack, I would be very, very HAPPY!!! I refuse to manually maintain Defender manually so haven’t used the Insider builds much over the last 2 months.

    Just sayn’…… 😀
