Jan 28 17:05:09 r5400-eth0 kernel: CIFS VFS: Error connecting to IPv4 socket. Aborting operation

On what kernel are you testing this?
2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 with cifs version 1.50cRH
Could you test this with a 5.3 kernel (-128.el5 or later)?
If that doesn't work, then please try the test kernels on my people.redhat.com page:
...they have CIFS patches that I'm testing for 5.4. There are some plaintext auth fixes in there so it's possible that this is already fixed.
According to Akemi (see CentOS entry) and by reading the cifs folder, the bug is still there on the GA of RHEL-5.3 (-128 release). I am attaching the 2 lines patch, maybe it's faster if you could check it against your src.rpm? otherwise I can download your src.rpm and glance at them.
Created attachment 330298 [details]
upstream patched from samba bugzilla
ok I see the 2 patches which are fixing the issue:
Any chance that they are pushed on kernel 5.3 BA ?
Doubtful that that will make a 5.3.z release. It's not causing a panic or security issue. It should make 5.4 though.
thanks for your time and input. Meanwhile any one who needs to have it fixed will need to request a RHEL support case from their regular support channel.It's probably also there on 4.7 also, maybe it could be fixed for 4.8?

I believe the patches in question are already in the CIFS update for 4.8.
yes, it's on your list of patches for 4.8 at http://people.redhat.com/jlayton/
