Summary0004495: Some functions of enum4linux are incompatible with recent versions of smbclient

enum4linux fails to produce some information when using recent versions of smbclient:

The functionality appears to have been removed with this samba commit:

I can confirm that when I use smbclient 2.6.7, these errors are resolved.

To solve this problem:
-It may be possible to try to "undo" the above commit, as a local patch to Kali's smbclient.
-Or, an old version of smbclient could be packaged as a dependency of enum4linux.

There is also an issue with the "enumdomusers" function, which is not fixed by using smbclient 2.6.7. The command which enum4linux tries to execute is:
$ rpcclient -W TOPHAT -c enumdomusers -U''\%''
which returns no results.
It is possible that this would be fixed by using an older version of rpcclient, but I have not tested this.

I'd just like to confirm that this problem is still present in both the base Kali 2018.1 release as well as Kali 2018.1 with all updates up till today, April 5 2018. I'm currently using a second install of Kali, 2017.2 no updates, to perform my enum4linux sweeps as the problem isn't present in that build.

Some people have reported the following helps:

Add the following to /etc/samba/smb.conf in the [global] section
client min protocol = SMB2
client max protocol = SMB3

service smbd restart

Due to the age of the OS (Kali Moto [v1], Kali Safi [v2], Kali Rolling <= 2018.4), these legacy versions are no longer supported.
