Re: [Samba] How to mount a share without using -o vers=1.0 ?

Hi all,

Behavior described in this email is identical whether I try to mount at, my desktop and location of my Samba server, or, my laptop that is remote from my desktop with Samba

I want to mount a share defined on my Linux desktop, on my Linux
laptop, as a better alternative than sshfs or NFS. I want this mount to
happen as version 2.x or 3.x, not as version 1.x. I was successful
using version 1.x with the following mount command:

mount -t cifs -o
username=slitt,vers=1.0 // /mnt/mdesk

However, when I remove the vers=1.0, it fails with the following

mount error: Server abruptly closed the connection.
This can happen if the server does not support the SMB version you are
trying to use. The default SMB version recently changed from SMB1 to
SMB2.1 and above. Try mounting with vers=1.0. mount error(112): Host is
down Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs) and
kernel log messages (dmesg)

So I'm still left with the question, how do I do this without vers=1.0.

dmesg pretty much just repeats the error message, as follows:

FS-Cache: Netfs 'cifs' registered for caching
[859714.535143] Key type cifs.spnego registered
[859714.535152] Key type cifs.idmap registered
[909312.597299] 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.

The mount.cifs man page seemed mute on the subject except for -o
sec=whatever, and all combinations I tried of sec=whatever and smb.conf
security=whatever didn't change the symptom.

I'm running Void Linux (x86_64) with smbd version 3.6.25 and nmbd
version 3.6.25. My mount.cifs is version 6.9. My iptables firewall
allows both tcp and udp traffic in and out at ports 137, 138, 139, 53,
and 445.

The global part of my smb.conf follows:

    workgroup = MYGROUP
    server string = mdesk_share
    security = user
    hosts allow =
    load printers = yes
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
    max log size = 50
    passdb backend = tdbsam
    dns proxy = no

The smb.conf section for the share I'm trying to mount follows:

   comment = Mydesk Mount point
   path = /scratch/mdesk
   valid users = slitt
   public = yes
   writeable = yes
   printable = no

I couldn't find an answer on Samba.Org, and web searches produced
mostly guesses and speculation, many of which I followed up on but led

Any advice on how to perform this mount without -o vers=1.0 would be
greatly appreciated.



Steve, Your version of Samba is too old, it only understands SMBv1, any way you can upgrade Samba ?
