    mount error(13): Permission denied, kernel: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -13

    Error:
    We are facing this issue while mounting a CIFS share on Linux Server.

    mount error(13): Permission denied
    Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
    kernel: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -13


    Solution:

    1. Check the Kernel version of the Linux Server.

    uname -a

    2. If the kernel versions is prior to v3.8 then the default value of security was ntlm . In v3.8, the default was changed to ntlmssp. Hence we need to change the security option to ntlm if you are using NTLM password hashing.

    3. Please mention sec=ntlm in mounting options.
