Smbclient works fine:

[root@sgwkskev01 kev]# smbclient // -mSMB3 -UKevin
Enter Kevin's password: 
Domain=[SGSVR01] OS=[] Server=[]
smb: \>

But could not mount:

[root@sgwkskev01 kev]# mount -t cifs -o username=Kevin,password=******** //sgsvr01/s /mnt/a
mount error(112): Host is down
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
[root@sgwkskev01 kev]#

I had this issue, then discovered that adding one of the following to the mount options makes it work! No idea why though - is the kernel module failing to auto-negotiate?

vers=2.1 vers=3.0

sudo mount -t cifs -o rw,netbiosname=mazaltov,user=alex,password=xxx,vers=3.0 // /home/vagrant/docs

It works for me with windows 10 and guest machine ubuntu 14.04
