So i noticed on our Dataon S2D cluster that not all interfaces had a SMB Listener.

You can get the output for that from Netstat -xan

You will see something like this

Kernel    11 Listener NA   0

If you have 2 interfaces it should be like

Kernel    11 Listener NA   0
Kernel    11 Listener NA   0

What i did was i disabled the interface that did not have a listener and enabled it again and suddenly i had 2 interfaces when i run netstat -xan.

This is either a bug related to bootup or something with SMB binding. Il update this post as soon as i have something to share about this. But for now after a reboot i will need to disable the interface and enable it again.


It’s confirmed by 2 sources that it’s a known issue. It’s a NIC driver, Windows Server missmatch. I will try and get an update on this as soon as possible.
