    mount error(127): Key has expired

    Until a few days ago, everything was mounting fine. Then, when I tried mounting my Windoze share, I got the above message. (I added T-bird 3 RC2 that day.

    I've tried so many different ways of searching for the solution. I've check the Windoze7 machine (all seems 2B set correctly there; but I cannot connect using either cifs or smbfs.

    Here's the command (in fstab):

    // ~/Data   cifs    credentials=/root/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
    When I enter
    sudo mount -a
    I get
    mount error(127): Key has expired
    How do I permanently renew this key?

    Please help. I use the Windoze machine for backup to Mozy, and I use rsync to backup this machine to Windoze. But right now I can't mount a Windoze share.

    UPDATE: This is a windoze problem. Still haven't solved it. But will update when I do.

    SOLVED UPDATE: DOH! Apparently, I haven't been using Windoze in a while. I was mounting the widoze share folders from my windoze uac which is set up to have the pw expire (which it did).

    Your password may have expired or need to change it. Log on into a Windows box or RDP terminal to change the password first, then try mount again.
