Mount error 12 Cannot allocate memory when connecting SMB share

Problem: When mounting a Windows network share from Linux (such as Clonezilla), the mount command fails with error 12 cannot allocate memory.

Resolution:
On the Windows server, set
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache
to "1"

and set
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\Size
to "3"

Then reboot.

I found the solution HERE.
