How can we improve the SMA (K1000)?

Allow ability to enable authentication for client shares

Now that Microsoft is no longer allowing guest access to SMB shares by default, beginning with Windows 10 v1709 (Fall Creators Update), the appliance client share(s) are no longer of any use without changing the default behavior in Windows to be less secure.

See https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4046019/guest-access-smb2-disabled-by-default-in-windows-10-server-2016

The appliance should allow the admin to enable authentication to the \\k1000\client share(s) so that they are usable without compromising Windows security.

Ideally, existing accounts created or imported into the appliance (In Organizations, on Org enabled appliances) would be able to use this share, but a local account with a password we set would be serviceable.

    Kace Support,
    Can anyone comment if this has been fixed in version 9.0 of the Kace SMA? Or are their alternatives to using the client shares, and if yes, will they be discontinued in the future?
