Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • Using command that worked in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, the same command is not working to mount the share in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7
[example@kirino ~]$ mount.cifs -o username=kuroneko,password=xx,domain=example.net,sec=ntlmsspi //kuroneko/share /mnt/kuroneko
mount error(5): Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
  • In the system logs at /var/log/messages the following messages are seen:
Oct 21 13:59:57 kirino kernel: Status code returned 0xc0000001 NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL
