    I also have problems with CIFS. After a linux(!) reboot I can mount to the windows share no problem. but if I dare try to connect a second time thats when all hell breaks loose.

    I can't figure out what is going wrong but mount and mount.cifs remain in active processes and I have to kill them manually. But it still doesn't work just the same... I think I may be that CIFs is not properly closing the connection or something.

    I can't even umount either. everything just freezes.

    This may not be your problem but I had to add the workgroup=domain.yourdomain argument to all of my fstab entries after switching to CIFS.

    I also had the same errors from CIFS using the following syntax :

    Code:
    mount -t cifs //server/share /mnt/dir -o credentials=/path/to/file
    Code:
    mount error 13 = Permission denied
    Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
    The problem came from my credential file which was :

    Code:
    username=xxxxx
    password=yyyyy
    In my password I had a "&" and using the following credential file did work :

    Code:
    username=xxxxx
    password="yyyyy"

    I also had the
    Code:
    mount error 13 = Permission denied
    Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
    error.

    After changing my credentials file from

    Code:
    username=user
    password=passwd
    to

    Code:
    username=DOMAIN\user
    password=passwd
    it worked!

    Hope this helps
