Background

  • performance of the remote archive volumes are poor (only a few MiB/s)
  • remote share is a Microsoft Windows server
  • no performance problems by using "smbclient" on other Linux clients

Explanation

Open the "Local Group Policy Editor" on your Windows server and goto "Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Option". To improve the speed of your share you have to disable the policy "Microsoft network server: Digitally sing communications (always)".
