  • == > Guest access in SMB2 is disabled by default in Windows Server 2019. If you want to enable insecure guest access, you can configure the following Group Policy settings:

    Computer configuration\administrative templates\network\Lanman Workstation

    "Enable insecure guest logons"

    Note By enabling insecure guest logons, this setting reduces the security of Windows clients.
