Problem: When a monitor is directly attached to the Axcient appliance, the user may receive the following error message on the console”
CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -95 [100632.017236] CIFS VFS: Unexpected SMB signature
Cause: This is due to the replications trying different authorization protocols for mounting the servers. The authorization protocol that supports SMB Signing is ntlmi, but the Axcient replicate try other protocols first, such as ntlm. This causes mount failures and the above error, but eventually it gets to the right protocol and does a successful mount.
Solution: These error messages are not bugs and can safely be ignored.
