APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Since going to r730 wrklnk in to Qntc and fails as below. In
Qntc
trace we see some bad smd2 indicators. Wireshark trace shows
IOCTL operation failing with null pointer reference.

A second customer experiences same message when submitting
images to server in qntc using new smb2 implementation. Second
customer believes that setting the environment variable to SMB
only may circumvent the issue.
