Good day,

I cant mount a Windows share in my fstab when the share is on Vista SP1.

Example in my fstab:
#Windows 2003 Server WORKS
//nilgiri/transfer /mnt/windows/Nilgiri/transfer cifs exec,credentials=/etc/cifspw 0 0

#My laptop Running on Vista SP1 Does NOT works.
//penang/transfer /mnt/windows/Penang/transfer cifs exec,credentials=/etc/cifspw3 0 0

Another Windows XP Machine that WORKS.
//192.168.XXX.XXX/BackupTest /mnt/windows/BackupTest/backups cifs exec,credentials=/etc/cifspw2 0 0

My Firewall on Vista is disabled. I know DNS is not an issue here.

When i go #mount -a, i have this:
mount error 13 = Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

TFM does not say shiz about error 13.
Thanks.

PS: I use the local admin credentials to log on.
