I actually set vers=3.1.1 because the mount.cifs man page says that
either SBM1 or SMB3.1.1 is required for the unix extensions,
and I am aware that I do not want SMB1 :-)

But of course this won't help if the server does not support it.
May I suggest to add the information that SMB1 is required to
to make this clear?

Thank you very much for the explanation!
Knowing that my use case would require unix extensions but these are
currently not usable is exactly the kind of information I was looking
for. So I will switch to a different network protocol.

Kind regards
