Deployment with WinPE 10 version 1709 fails due to SMB1 being disabled by default

Microsoft has quite rightly disabled SMB1 by default in the WinPE 10 version 1709. Unfortunately, if you are still running SDA v3.7.x then you'll find that your scripted installs fail early-on as they try to mount the SMB1 shares from the SDA. Unfortunately, the copy of DISM built-in does not recognise the command line to enable SMB1.
This suggests Quest needs to update the Media Manager tool to enable SMB1 when creating a KBE with 1709. Alternatively, clarity is needed on how one gets to SMB2 or better. So I think we need a knowledge base article clarifying the situation here, stating the issue exists and how to deal with it.
We're scheduled to update to SDA v4.1.1 this coming weekend. So I will find out after that if SMB2 support is enabled in this newer product. We put off upgrading to 4.x earlier this year because of the 23 remote sites we have that will need their RSA migrated to 64-bit.
