What went wrong with this CIFS share mapping in Linux?

This is using SuSE Enterprise server SLES12. There is a mapping for this CIFS share on the server.

//           cifs      233G   92G  142G  40% /mnt/

In the "mount" command, see how this CIFS mapping established,

// on /mnt/ type cifs (rw,relatime,vers=1.0,cache=strict,username=chapman,uid=1015,forceuid,gid=0,noforcegid,addr=,file_mode=0755,dir_mode=0755,soft,nounix,serverino,mapposix,rsize=61440,wsize=65536,bsize=1048576,echo_interval=60,actimeo=1)

Recently, see this error messages from /var/log/messages,

2021-05-24T10:07:48.691737+08:00 ssin3empacXX kernel: [13722631.632626] CIFS VFS: \\ Send error in SessSetup = -13

What went wrong with this CIFS mapping?

Thanks in advance

What went wrong with this CIFS mapping?

was this working before?  if so, did someone change something on the target server either at the share or file system level?

if this is the first time trying to mount, make sure the account has proper access to that share

error 13 is permission denied

Hi Seth,

This is working in the past. I will check the credentials.

Can you ping the host
Can you confirm it did not lose the setting, or someone mocked around with the software firewall knocking access out?

In issues, I find it helpful to confirm the source is there and not generating errors.

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

The IP wasn't pingeable while this error occurred. Found out that the storage where this CIFS share located is "off".
