mount error(): Host is down

Hi, if you try mount samba (CIFS) on console:

sudo mount -a

mount: mount error(): Host is down (or similar error)
Dont worry :), enter in FSTAB and fix to version 1:

//IP/sharefolder /mnt/destination cifs username=windowslogin,password=passthislogin,iocharset=utf8,vers=1.0,sec=ntlm  0  0

vers=1.0 has added after error.

Change /etc/fstab (this trick) run:
sudo mount -a
mount -a (like a root)
