[Samba] Preserve username and date attributes when moving

man mount says:
mount [-fnrsvw] [-t vfstype] [-o options] device dir
Mount options for smbfs
Just like nfs, the smb implementation expects a binary argument (a struct smb_mount_data) to the mount
system call. This argument is constructed by smbmount(8) and the current version of mount (2.9w) does not
know anything about smb.
Then man smbmount says
sets the uid that will own all files on the mounted filesystem. It may be specified as either a
username or a numeric uid.
sets the gid that will own all files on the mounted filesystem. It may be specified as either a
groupname or a numeric gid.
So, mount -t smbfs -o uid=<whatever> gid=<whoever>
I think that covers it.

I trying to move some share from PATHWORKS on VMS.
My goal is to preserve the file owner and dates.
If I use a share from windows the file dates change.
If I use mount -t smbfs all files are owned by root but date attributes
Has anyone done this?
.... is there a way to map users with mount command?
.... is there some other way to achieve this?
