Mount error 112 when upgrading LEM

Updated June 13, 2017


The following error is displayed after entering the network share details and credentials while upgrading LEM:

Mount error 112


LEM 6.3.1 and earlier


This error may be caused by disabling support for SMBv1(client) in Windows active directory group policies, or directly by MS in your Windows release or the domain admin via GPO due to being outdated - i.e SMBv1 not as secure as compared to its counterparts SMBv2 and SBMv3.


Refer to Stop using SMB1 (Content provided by NedPyle [MSFT], available at, obtained on June 12, 2017) for an explanation on why SMB1 is disabled in the latest Windows version.


LEM version up to and including 6.3.1 HF6, only supports SMBv1 Client protocol. Support for SMB v2 and V3 is planned in upcoming major releases of LEM.
