"No dialect specified on mount" when mounting remote samba share

Solution Verified - Updated -


When mounting remote smaba share, below log message appears in /var/log/messages:

kernel: No dialect specified on mount. Default has changed to a more secure dialect, SMB2.1 or later (e.g. SMB3), from CIFS (SMB1). To use the less secure SMB1 dialect to access old servers which do not support SMB3 (or SMB2.1) specify vers=1.0 on mount.
