He is not listed by Keilig, what was the promotion date for him for Generalmajor?

Marcel Stein's book on Austrian Generals in the German Army has him as Generalmajor
Max Stiotta Edler von Hockenjos.
Promoted Lt in 1907
According to Stein he was promoted GM a few weeks before the surrender (page 273).
Incidentally 1944-45 Rangliste has a Stiotta promoted Obstlt 1/4/42(1072), peacetime unit Festungs-Pionier-Stab 26.

Here's a link to an post war investigation of Gen.Lt. Rudolf Schmetzer, Insp. d. Landbefestigungen West. He controlled v Stiotta's FestPiKdr XIX under AOK7 and FestPiKdr XVIII under AOK 15 -- does anyone know who was the commander of the latter?
There a re quite a few pictures of v. Stiotta floating around. I don't think the pic from ww2awards.com was him though as he had a very prominent clefted chin.
