Situation

OS X 10.9 Mavericks fails to connect to a CIFS server by entering:
cifs://servername

The following error is observed :
Error: "There are no shares available or you are not allowed to access them on the server. Please contact your system administrator to resolve the problem"

Workaround: 

Rather than entering cifs://servername specify the volume as well.
