FIX – Setting up LDAP Server/Client on Synology NAS for SMB

    If you’ve been trying to setup two Synology NAS devices one being a LDAP Server and another the LDAP Client and you cannot connect with your LDAP account to network shares via SMB, here is your fix.

    ON SYNOLOGY LDAP SERVER – Control Panel -> File Services -> Windows File Service/SMB -> Disable “Enable SMB2 and Large MTU”

    ON SYNOLOGY LDAP CLIENT – Control Panel -> Directory Service > Enable Windows CIFS support

    The only way I could get LDAP between two Synology NAS’s to work with SMB was making sure BOTH of the above are set, not just one or the other.
