Samba: Element not found

Getting this on Windows 10?

Element not found

When trying to mount a Samba share?  It's likely due to using username map that looks similar to:

# cat /n/samba/user.map
john@mds.xyz = john
bob@mds.xyz = bob

Removing the file or the troublesome user entry, bob, solves the issue.  The above works on a MacBook / OSX 10 but in Win 10 it throws the subject error.  What to do?  Just remove the non-MAC user from the user map file above:

# cat /n/samba/user.map
john@mds.xyz = john

Just leave the MAC user, john.
