The System is acting as a client to a Windows Server. A share is mounted onto the system via smbmount. This mount seems to be successful and a subsequent mount shows:

// on /mnt type smbfs

but any attempt to access this share fails with an ERROR:Permission denied
even so everything seems to be configured correctly and maybe worked with a SLES8 before fine.


Do not use
mount -t smbfs
as smbfs is deprecated. Instead use
mount -t cifs
