This error (as it says) indicates there is a problem with your login credentials. Is your Linux username different than what you use to log into the Windows server? If so, you need to specify the Windows username in the command by using
-o username=myname
Is the Windows server a member of a domain? If so, you may also need to include the domain name in your user id.
