We have some sites that recently upgrade their servers to Windows

We looked at disabling opportunistic locking but according to this
Microsoft kb article (, it's
not possible to disable opportunistic locking in Windows 2008.

Does anyone know if disabling SMB2 is the only option? Any
disadvantages of disabling SMB2?
