Scan to network share SMB not working – Windows Updates

After applying one of Jan 2018 Windows updates to windows servers 2012 and could be 2008, scanning to network shares SMB fails from Network printers/copiers, the scan user gets locked out at times.

We’ve had issues with different kind of copiers like Canon iR3035, imageRUNNER 6275 and image RUNNER advance iR-ADV4235.

One full week of troubleshooting the culprit was Windows update KB4056896 that came  out in Jan 2018 and added mores security to SMB.


Uninstall Update.
