Description of problem: Not able to mount windows shares, NTLM authentication error

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Mount windows share on Windows 2000 with FC6 running 
kernel-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6, upgrade to kernel kernel-2.6.20-1.2944.fc6, NTLM auth

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount Windows Share on Win 2000 server running  FC6/kernel-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6
2. upgrade kernel to kernel-2.6.20-1.2944.fc6
3. try to mount same share
Actual results: Mount fail with NTLM authentication error

Expected results: Mount succeds

Additional info: Rebooting into kernel-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6 resolves the problem.

Comment 1 Chuck Ebbert 2007-04-16 23:16:26 UTC
Run this command before trying the mount:

  echo 1 >/proc/fs/cifs/cifsFYI

This should provide extra debug messages in the system log when the
mount fails. Please post them.

Comment 2 Ted Kaczmarek 2007-04-24 00:42:50 UTC
I tried booting back into kernel-2.6.20-1.2944.fc6 and don't see the issue any more, not sure if some 
relevant update came in, but it still does not add up. if I see the issue again I will make sure to set that 
cifsFYI option to 1 and open a new bug if needed.

Close the bug, thanks for the help.
