8463: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed
.. I notice when I type the hostname in wrong I get a different error, so it seems the authentication piece is where its blowing up at.. any ideas?
The solution was using this command:
smbmount //dss-sa1725543/DHHMEDS /media/dss-sa1725543 -o username=dhhmeds/dss-sa1725543,password=password
..notice i specified the computer name after the username. if this computer was in a domain i would have specified the domain after the username.
