Why? This is NOT necessary for win 10 to work. I do not even know if it will
work with win 10 but for sure it is not necessary. You are actually suggesting
going backwards.

Default: server max protocol = SMB3

By default SMB3 selects the SMB3_11 variant.

SMB3_11: Windows 10 technical preview SMB3 version (maybe final).

I have a half dozen or so samba file servers that have a combination of
win7 and win10 versions running and none of the config files contain
anything that changes the SMB version.

I would suspect if you have to mess with the SMB protocols to get win 10
to talk, you are doing something else wrong.
