Hi All, I've got an issue that I know I must be overlooking the simple solution to.
I've setup a cifs share to mount to my RHEL 7.2 system using /etc/fstab, below is the entry in the fstab:
//192.168.20.10/Share /mnt/reportshare cifs vers=2.0,credentials=<custom credentials file path here> 0 0
I also added the following line to my /etc/samba/smb.conf file under the [global] sections:
min protocol = SMB2
When the system starts up I consistently get these two lines right at the end of my 'dmesg' output:
[ 32.220097] CIFS VFS: Error connecting to socket. Aborting operation.
[ 32.220320] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -115
when I try to troubleshoot with smbclient I get the following output to the listed command:
# smbclient //192.168.20.10/Share -U <username here>
protocol negotiation failed: NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_RESET
Finally, when I run "mount -a " as root after startup the Windows share mounts as expected from the /etc/fstab entry.
For the life of me I cannot find a reason why the share will not mount at startup. There has got to be something simple that I am overlooking - any help would be appreciated!
