Remember a few months ago when I asked for help with Windows CIFS mounts
that normally worked, but sometimes failed? Didn't matter if Linux or
Windows clients attempted access? Didn't matter if a GUI tool or
mount.cifs was used.
The error was:
mount: Remote I/O error
Found the solution today. Registry entry needed on the Windows side.
IRPStackSize DWORD 0x0000000f (15)
It is case-sensitive and after creating the IRPStackSize, need to
restart the "Services" windows service. Then it works, immediately.
