Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:55 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mount.cifs version: 1.5
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount.cifs //<cifs_server_name>/<cifs_share>
2. Verify mount failed with error message:
mount error 13 = Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
12575: session setup failed: ERRSRV - 2242
SMB connection failed
3. Mount does not success, as verified from output of mount command.
Mount did not complete.
Mount should complete without error.
Please let us know what more is necessary to investigate this case. This mount
works from an identically configured system without issue, which is also
running RHEL 4.4.
Close this non-bug: the user account that was being used for the mount had an
expired password. Once fixed, the mount succeeded without issue.
