Description redhatbugzilla 2017-10-29 23:56:03 UTC
Using 4.13.9-200.fc26.x86_64, trying to mount a Windows 10 share (which does support up to SMB dialect 3.02).
Also fails using any 4.13 kernel on fc25 and presumably fc27

Use the default dialect (which is 3.02 for this server):
umount /mnt;mount -t cifs -o username=$user,password=$password //win0/c /mnt
umount: /mnt: not mounted.
mount error(5): Input/output error

Inspecting a tcpdump shows that this server supports 2.1, 3.0 and 3.02.

Forcing 2.1 works:
umount /mnt;mount -t cifs -o username=$user,password=$password,vers=2.1 //win0/c /mnt

Forcing 3.0 fails:
umount /mnt;mount -t cifs -o username=$user,password=$password,vers=3.0 //win0/c /mnt;mount | grep /mnt
umount: /mnt: not mounted.
mount error(5): Input/output error

Forcing 3.02 also fails:
umount /mnt;mount -t cifs -o username=$user,password=$password,vers=3.02 //win0/c /mnt;mount | grep /mnt
umount: /mnt: not mounted.
mount error(5): Input/output error

All the failures appear to fail on a step of the the SMB protocol "FSCTL_VALIDATE_NEGOTIATE_INFO" (part of Secure Dialect Negotiation). Version 2.1 does not do that step.

Dropping back to kernel 4.12.*, all the SMB versions (dialects) work just fine.

Forcing 3.02 works when using kernel 4.12.13-300.fc26.x86_64: 
umount /mnt;mount -t cifs -o username=$user,password=$password,vers=3.02 //win0/c /mnt
