You will get the error:
"protocol negotiation failed: NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_RESET"
This is because the Windows server which has been configured to only allow SMBv2 will TCP RST the connection.
Adding "-m SMB2" parameter, to the smbclient command will result in the following error:
"Unrecognised protocol level SMB2"
Samba 4.x which ships with SLES 12 does support SMBv2. (Durable handles support was added in 4.0.0)
