    For me SMB2 can be used to mount shared drives and start copy operations but will fail about 99 percent of the way through saying the file is in use.

    I have read problems that SMB2 fails to mount some network shares. My shares mount but copy/move/rename/delete operations fail.

    Switching to SMB1 allows me to complete all functions.

    Think it's a known issue, not sure what you mean by switch to smb1 (server side?) but to switch to smb1 on client side just use 'cifs://' instead of 'smb://' .

    switching to SMB1 would mean client side as protocol version request is initiated by the client.

    On the server side I would copy/move/rename/delete through the local filesystem.

    I had to keep digging in the forum to find the known workaround with using cifs: instead of smb: I normally just use the finder sidebar since all of my shares show up there and you do not get to specify a version.

    By default it'll be SMB2, I think, with Mavericks.

    My time machine backs up to a shared drive connected to another mac.

    Since mavericks! I am having all kinds of connection problems.

    If I substitute cifs instead of smb I get an error saying "the server may not exist or is unavailable at this time..." If I connect using smb, it's fine until the machine sleeps, then it doesn't auto-reconnect after wake and the time machine backup fails again.
