[SOLVED] mount.cifs "mount error(2): No such file or directory"

I'm trying to connect to a shared drive at work (primarily a windows facility).  I have no previous experience with samba, so I may be missing something obvious, but the error message I'm getting is not very informative:

$ sudo mount -t cifs //FILESERVER/Public /mnt/work -o username=jessem,domain=redacted.com,iocharset=utf8
[sudo] password for jmcclure:
Password for jessem@//FILESERVER/Public:
mount error(2): No such file or directory
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

(note "redacted.com" is in place of the actual domain, all else is actual command and output)

The mount point exists:

$ stat /mnt/work/
  File: /mnt/work/
  Size: 4096            Blocks: 8          IO Block: 4096   directory
Device: 802h/2050d      Inode: 1585017     Links: 2
Access: (0755/drwxr-xr-x)  Uid: (    0/    root)   Gid: (    0/    root)

Change: 2019-08-30 11:54:12.000000000

And my password is correct as I get results from smbclient with the password (first output below), but not if I intentionally use a worng password (second output):

$ smbclient -L FILESERVER -U jessem -W redacted.com
Unable to initialize messaging context
Enter REDACTED.COM\jessem's password:

        Sharename       Type      Comment

        ADMIN$          Disk      Remote Admin
        C$              Disk      Default share

Reconnecting with SMB1 for workgroup listing.

        Server               Comment

        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            -------

$ smbclient -L FILESERVER -U jessem -W redacted.com
Unable to initialize messaging context
Enter REDACTED.COM\jessem's password:
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

So I can list the shares, but mounting fails with the message "No such file or directory".  Adding the verbose flag doesn't seem to provide much more:

$ sudo mount -t cifs //FILESERVER/Public /mnt/work -o username=jessem,domain=redacted.com,iocharset=utf8 --verbose
Password for jessem@//FILESERVER/Public:
mount.cifs kernel mount options: ip=192.168.10.97,unc=\\FILESERVER\Public,iocharset=utf8,user=jessem,domain=redacted.com,pass=********
mount error(2): No such file or directory
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

Are there other diagnostics I could collect?

Re: [SOLVED] mount.cifs "mount error(2): No such file or directory"

Waht does

ping FILESERVER

yield?
Did you try it's IP address instead of the NetBIOS host name?
Edit: Did you also try to use an explicit version?

Re: [SOLVED] mount.cifs "mount error(2): No such file or directory"

Thanks for that link, I'm not sure how I missed it.  I'll have to try some of that tomorrow when I'm back on the network.  I never tried `ping FILESERVER` directly, but I was able to ping the ip address that is listed in the verbose output for that server.

(edit: I didn't bring my computer in today, so I'll have to check back on Tuesday)

EDIT: pinging works:

$ ping -c 3 FILESERVER
PING FILESERVER (192.168.10.97): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 192.168.10.97: seq=0 ttl=128 time=3.084 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.10.97: seq=1 ttl=128 time=3.127 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.10.97: seq=2 ttl=128 time=3.056 ms

--- FILESERVER ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 3.056/3.089/3.127 ms

Following the link above, though, I found it was the "vers" option, but in my case (discovered through trial and error) I needed to add "vers=1.0" to the mount options.  Thanks!

I can also confirm setting vers=1 solves the issue
