I can no longer access network shares through unc paths \\server\share I get the 0x80070043 "Network name cannot be found" error.
I suspect that this is related to the removal of Homegroups? but surely it was not intended to break basic UNC functionality, or am I missing something?

@DarrenMiller They eventually said the luns were dropped during the restarts because there was a raid rebalance going at that time. I'm not sure why that would cause it to drop connections, but that's what I was told. I had replaced a drive in one of the sc2080's under the NAS head a few days before doing the restarts. From the end user side I don't believe there is any way to actually see that the system is still balancing data after replacing a disk.
The amount of disk these arrays have dropped is at about 15% in 2.5 years of use which is about 10% worse then any other array I run fwiw.

Do you know if Dell properly remedied this issue? (or how they went about doing so?)
We're running their latest version now which helped fix SMB 3.1.1 since it didn't work at all, but always noticed oddities here and there. And now we've started seeing an uptick in random drive mounting and UNC access issues even with version 6.0.400016 on our cluster. I believe so far this is mostly on Win10 2004 and higher. We're attempting to reach out to Dell but figured I'd pick your (or anyone's) brain on this.

There are continuing issues with the Dell Fluid FS system (firmware 6.0.400016) and smb shares. I don't recall the exact update, but I believe it was all the way back in May 2020 or so and basically end users started seeing dropped/not working shares. I worked on it for a bit and eventually contacted Dell. They acknowledged there was now an issue with SMB 3.11 and the Fluid FS and the only solution was to disable smb 3.11 on the client end. They haven't fixed this and from everyone I have spoken to are not going to fix this.
We ended up pushing out a gpo to disable 3.11 for all Windows users. We are still under Dell support with this system until March 2022 but they have completely stopped updating it as far as I can tell. I've contacted our support rep and got nowhere on this.
We have since got new hardware in from a different vendor and will no longer be using Dell storage.

Not happy with Dell at all on this. After 1903 they simply added the 2 extra flags to the FluidFS SMB implementation. SMB 3.1.1 stopped working on FluidFS again after 2004, @Ned Pyle were there additional SMB flags added then?
Unfortunately we have had to run on SMB 2 since then however I see Dell has just released a new update for FluidFS now in June 2021. I have not tried it yet but will do shortly.
