Samba - "session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)"

Hello all,

I’m trying to mount a Win2K3 share on a linux (SuSE 9) box using Samba. The share maps fine from my WinXP PC (using a local account on the win server). From the linux box the smbclient -L command returns a list of the shares available, and using the smbclient command I can also connect to the share and create directories and files.

However, when I try to mount the share using smbmount //<server>/<share> /mnt -o username="<server>/<id>",password=<pw> I get the error “session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)”.

Given that mapping and smbclient work fine it implies that the problem does not lie explicitly with user permissions?

The error crops up a lot in the google searching I’ve done, but of everything I’ve found nothing has fixed the problem.
