mount cifs error 13 (permission denied) but...

I have a linux box that is used to run some tasks, such as backup some files on windows computers among other things.

the debian box has:

eth0 == network1/domain1
eth1 == network2/domain2

both are assigned via dhcp from the network(s) dhcp server.

the linux box has a samba share that is wide open for everybody on either network to use...

daily i have been mounting computer(s) from network1 to create and save tarballs of some folders/files on a few of the computers (4 of them)

to mount the drive i just:

mount -o username=username,password=password,ro -t cifs //hostname/c$ /winshare

and run the tarball for folders/files found in /winshare.

at the end of the script - it unmounts and goes on to the next computer doing the same thing.

this works perfectly fine with everything connected to eth0...

trying to do the same thing with eth1 and i get access denied, even when i add the "dom=" feature in the command to tell it the domain name.

few things that might or might not matter:

1) i can't resolve network2 hosts by name - so my mount commands are via ip
2) resolv.conf has a 'domain' and 'search' line that point to eth0's domain - it does have the dns server for eth1 though. but no 'domain' and 'search' lines
3) both networks can access the samba share just fine
4) both eth1 and eth0 are getting dhcp information from windows 2003 servers.
5) i know my username/password is right =)

thanks guys!

You don't' say if account is local to the server or from Active Directory.

To specify domain name try with group parameter:
or try with:
(if you have no other character delimiter for domain and group).

neither worked =(

and sorry, im trying to use a Active Directory username and password... though if that is the problem i can just as easily add a local user to the few computers i want to do this on.

i will try that in a bit.
