samba mount error(6)

Hi, this is my first post here. I'm trying to set up a home file server on Fedora 25 (upgraded from 23 to 24, then to 25).

First I successfully followed step by step the tutorial here and I have /myshare mounted to /test for user: adam.

Now I'm trying the same for another directory created on a software raid1 volume mounted as /mnt/raid1. I followed once again the same tutorial replacing "/myshare" with "/mnt/raid1/raid1share" and "/test" with "/test2" and it goes well all the way until that step:

~]# mount //localhost/raid1share /test2/ -o user=adam

...where after entering the password I get the following error:

Retrying with upper case share name
mount error(6): No such device or address
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

I remember a bit unix and linux from my university days in the early '1990s (Including first linux version ever, booted from a single 3.5" floppy disk :-) ) but then my entire professional career involved MS Windows Server systems mostly.

I'm trying to brush up my linux skills after many years, so please be patient with me. Thanks!
