vDR mount issue with windows 2008 r2


I am not sure if anyone else has seen this issue but just in case if your using a windows 2008 network share for vmware data recovery you could get “cifs_mount failed w/return code = -111” when trying to add it.
A couple things to fix this was that I added the domain and search parameters in the /etc/resolv.conf file of the data recovery appliance which was not there by default. I also had to make sure I was using the dns name in the path because using the ip address still gave me the error. Once those two corrections were made I was able to connect to the windows 2008 network share. Because this was a previously used location I was prompt to import the back information then all was well.
The default username and password is root, vmw@re.
