[opensuse-factory] cifs mount parameters no longer work, SOLVED
I have used the following fstab entry for quite some time but a recent
update, since 0923, it fails and I cannot determine the fail point. I
have removed one parameter at a time but still cannot mount the partition.

// /home/paka/cifs cifs
//0 0


the failure msg:
mount error(22): Invalid argument
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

from /var/log/messages:
No dialect specified on mount. Default has changed to a more secure
dialect, SMB3 (vers=3.0), from CIFS (SMB1). To use the less secure SMB1
dialect to access old servers which do not support SMB3 specify vers=1.0
on mount. For somewhat newer servers such as Windows 7 try vers=2.1.
CIFS VFS: Unable to select appropriate authentication method!
CIFS VFS: Send error in SessSetup = -22
CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22

after much searching, the answer was simple:
remove "sec=ntml" from fstab entry

research indicates a kernel change may be responsible and may relate to
"plain text passwords"

works now after removing sec=
