Cifs "mount error 11 = Resource temporarily unavailable"
When I try mounting a windows 2000/XP share with cifs I get an error about the resource not being available:

mount -t cifs //hostname/share /mnt/temp -o username=someuser,password=somepassword
mount error 11 = Resource temporarily unavailable
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page ( mount.cifs)

Other times this works normally and mounts the samba/windows share.
But at the time the cifs command returns "Resource temporarily unavailable" I immediately repeat the command with smbfs instead of cifs:

mount -t smbfs //hostname/share /mnt/temp -o username=someuser,password=somepassword
and it works as normal and I can browse around the filesystem!

I then immediately try the cifs line again and it gives me the same "Resource temporarily unavailable error"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What the hell is wrong with cifs? I thought it was supposed to be better than smbfs...

I also got an error 11, but it was from linux to linux.

I updated everything on both machines (with yum) and everything worked fine afterwards.

Hope this helps.
