We have a Windows 2003 fileserver here on a domain. I've been
mounting it via Linux for a couple years now. Some time in the last
three months it stopped working. Perhaps some patch was applied that
broke things? I have no idea what's causing it but I always get a
permission denied error message.

:mount q-drive/
mount error 13 = Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

here is the line from my /etc/fstab that has worked for quite a while.

// /mnt/q-drive cifs

Talking to the Windows admin (I'm all Linux) it looks like the
server doesn't like my username/password!?! I *know* the password is
correct I've tried it on other (Windows) boxes and it works fine. Am
I missing something silly?
