SMB Decode Operation Names

Dynatrace Pro

Can we get a break down of the SMB protocol options that correspond to the operation names we see.


Control \\server\path\path\*.*
Read \\server\path\path\*.*

What SMB commands fit into 'Control'

We're trying to help diagnose a NAS issue with a customer, and understanding this will help us correlate what we see vs. what's seen in packet captures and server logs.


Hi Chris,

Did you manage to get the SMB decode to break into those operation ?

No I haven't.

NAM wouldn't provide further insight into the SMB control operations. There's many of them falling into this basket, basically anything that's not read, write or session setup. SMB is very chatty.

Unfortunately there is no ADS/ADOD data level available for SMB, so basically the decode analysis depth ends here. Further troubleshooting can only be continued with packet captures.
