Hallo, Michael,

One mistake (from me): these flags must be set on the client. The client
tries to mount, and it uses its local "mount.cifs".

But (regarding my error correction): ypu always can set the SUID flag on
your laptop's "mount.cifs"!

The server has to decide wether it will accept the mount try.

Viele Gruesse!
Helmut
