Hi Eveyrone.
I have a NAS Lacie Cloudbox whit CIFS. And Proxmox 5.4.
When execute pvesm cifsscan <ip> it's show the shared folders. But when i try to connect with:
pvesm add cifs Prueba --server --share Family --username admin --password <password> --smbversion 2.1
pvesm add cifs Prueba --server --share Family --username admin --password <password> --smbversion 2.0
I got this error:
mount error(112): Host is down
create storage failed: error with cfs lock 'file-storage_cfg': mount error: Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
but the host definitely is not down.
Attached the picture...
Help me please.

and if you omit the 'smbversion' parameter completely?
Please post the output of:
* `ping`
* `dmesg`
try it with version 1.0
