I have RSA Authentication Manager Server 8.2.0 and I am unable to save Configuration Backups to an smb share after disabling smbv1.
When will RSA Authentication Manager Server support SMBv2+?
Yes, included in the new version of Suse Linux
I too would also like an answer to this question. We've recently update our RSA Authentication Manager to 8.2 SP1. Is there a future release or workaround to use SMBv2+ to do backups?
Anyone? I assume older versions such as 8.1 also only support v1? When will AM support v2?
SMB v1 is a security vulnerability. When will SMB v2 be supported?
Has there been any updates from RSA regarding this?
No news from RSA

As everyone has discovered, the Authentication Manager ver. 8.2 SP1 appliance does not support communications (archive logs or backups) with a remote Windows File Share that uses SMBv2 or v3. Only SMBv1 will work.
This situation will not change with the introduction of AM 8.3 scheduled for this coming January. AM 8.2 and 8.3 use Suse Linux 11 SP4 as their operating system, and Suse Linux 11 SP4 only supports SMBv1. Suse has informed RSA that there are no plans to add SMBv2 or later support to Suse 11 SP4, and that customers would need to upgrade to Suse Linux 12 for support for anything greater than SMBv1. RSA Engineering is aggressively pressing Suse for a solution to this problem short of the forklift OS upgrade to Suse Linux 12, but there is no timeline on this yet. Only work-arounds are to backup to NFS or locally.
Any updates on this?
unfortunately no, Suse still refuses to provide fix for Suse 11 to support SMBv2, which means RSA has to plan for a forklift upgrade to the AM appliance from Suse 11 to Suse 12 in order to be able to provide SMBv2 support for remote backups and syslogs
Any updates on this? Do you have more info on when SMBv2 might be supported? When would RSA switch their appliance to Suse 12?
This will be in AM 8.4.
8.4 was released. Was this issue fixed there? Is SMBv2 now supporteD?
This thread should have been posted to RSA SecurID Access, not to RSA Access Manager.
I've moved it to the correct space.
This was always an OS limitation, not the Auth Manager code itself.
Now is fixed in AM version 8.4 and up.
8.4 update will upgrade the OS from 11.4 to 12.3
The new OS is
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 (x86_64)VERSION = 12PATCHLEVEL = 3
And now supports smbv2.
