How to specify to Dolphin CIFS version for network share?

Recent versions of Windows servers (2012 and later) introduced a new version of CIFS (SMB) protocol used for shared drives (CIFS 3). In order to mount such shares using mount, one has to pass CIFS version explicitly, for example:

Code: Select all
mount -t cifs -o vers=3.0,uid=<user>,gid=<group>,user=<cifs_user> //server/share <where_to_mount>

That works, however when I tried to open such share from Dolphin (4.14.2) simply using smb://server/share it failed apparently because Dolphin didn't pick the right CIFS version (mount also fails if version is not explicitly specified). Is there any way to tell Dolphin what version of CIFS to use for particular share?

Thanks.

I'm afraid the Samba/CIFS support in KDE predates these sort of options being necessary so we're not able to specify them at the moment.
I'd suggest mounting them normally and using those mounts through Dolphin as a workaround.

Yep, that's what I do (manual mount). Should I file a bug about or it's a known issue?

You'll need to file a bug i'm afraid - I am not aware of any existing bug for this.

I couldn't find a bug report about this issue either. Please post a link to your bug report here after filing it (the correct product is most likely 'kio', component 'smb').
