Anyone knows when SMB 2.1 (specifically, the CIFS lease caching mechanism) will be supported ?
TR-3740 and all the latest Ontap7.X releases only stated SMB 2.0 support, while the Ontap8 release note says SMB 2 is just not supported at all.
The SMB 2/2.1 support is getting pretty critical now that my clients are moving toward Windows 7 (After skipping Vista)
SMB 2.1 support is coming up in a future Data ONTAP release.

SMB 2.1 should be available again in 8.1.3.
However, Bug 623978 ("File opens over the SMB 2.1 protocol can take 35-40 seconds to respond") is fixed in 8.1.2P3. I assume that means that SMB 2.1 is already available in that version.
Does anyone know for sure if that is the case?
