Description tpr 1999-06-03 14:50:13 UTC
Mounting an smbfs filesystem from /etc/fstab, if you use the
user=wibble,passwd=hatstand options, the /sbin/mount.smb
script gets the smbmount command line wrong, putting the
-U wibble before the hatstand. Patch is:

fixed in latest samba release (2.0.4b-4, or so)

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-08 14:29:59 UTC
*** Bug 4973 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

/sbin/mount.smb places the password in the wrong place
causing the smbmount to fail.

Replace:
    exec smbmount "$1" $USER $PASSWORD -c "$COMMAND"
with
    exec smbmount "$1" $PASSWD $USER -c "$COMMAND"

thanks,
