WAAS support SMB2?

Does WAAS support SMB2? When or what version?

SMB2 is better than SMB/CIFS and can be used  between Vista/7 and Windows 2008. Also SMB2 uses newReno TCP algorithm that is better for high loss environments.

Thanks

Re: WAAS support SMB2?

The CIFS AO does not currently support SMBv2.  We are working on this for a future release.  Based on our initial testing, there is still plently of opportunity for acceleration improvements even with the changes that have been made to the protocol.

The TCP enhancements are somewhat irrelevant, except on thier potential to improve the behavior of TCP on the client <-> WAE and WAE <-> server segments.  The WAAS optimized connections have had the performance improvements in the new Windows TCP stack for some time.

The best thing to do is contact your local Account Manager or Systems Engineer for additional information on future release items.
