Has anyone ran across this issue?  I am just seeing this for the 1st time.   I have a users running 1903 patch on a windows 10 pro laptop.   When he tries to UNC to his server he is getting this error..

You can't connect to the file share because its not secure.   This share requires the obsolete SMB1 protocol, which is unsafe and could expose your system to attack.   Your system requires SMB2 or higher.  For more info on resolving this issue, see:

The file server is 2003 however other machines in the company on the same domain running Windows 10 pro with almost the latest feature patch ARE able to access the 2003 server share.   I can't UNC to the file server from his machine either get the same error
