I need to allow Mac users to connect to Samba/CIFS shares that are forcing NTLMv2 (or higher), but unfortunately, doesn't seem to be able to support this (e.g., this Apple discussion describes exactly the problem I'm encountering). The smbclient CLI can connect and browse, etc., but then you can force it to use NTLMv2.
