mounting NAS problems

Post by theesp » Mon Feb 05, 2018 10:40 am

Hello,

When I try to mount my NAS with the latest kernel of Mint 18.3 (1.13.0-32) I get a CIFS error: mount error(112): Host is down

The command I use to mount is: sudo mount -t cifs -o username=XYZ,password=XXXXXX,sec=ntlm,uid=1000 //NAS/Project /home/who/Project/ adding the 'vers=1.0' makes no difference. I mount the NAS through command line.

The most actual kernel that mounts the NAS without a problem is 4.10-0-42 I've experimented quite a bit, read through the forums but haven't come up with a solution so far so I would appreciate some guidance.

TIA.

I hate working with NAS devices.

Everything in your post would indicate a protocol level mismatch.

Um ... Well ... maybe the nas disabled SMB1 but it's still not able to handle the default SMB3 that cifs uses in the more resent kernels .... Instead of vers=1.0 use vers=2.0:

Code: Select all

sudo mount -t cifs -o username=XYZ,password=XXXXXX,sec=ntlm,uid=1000,vers=2.0 //NAS/Project /home/who/Project/
If that doesn’t work try vers=2.1
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.

Had the same problem in the fstab table.

For alle with a avm fritz box 7490 you have to use:
vers=1.0
Linux Mint 18.1 with Windows Gaming VM:
Intel i7 6900K with Intel TS13X, ASRock Fatal1ty X99X Killer, GeForce GT730 (Linux), 8GB Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro+ OC Aktiv (VM), 32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX C DDR4-3000, CSL - 4-Port USB 3.0 PCIe (VM).
