You probably didn't set both, like this:  username=a,password=b

This depends on what you want to do. One smbfs mount acts to the server as
one NT user (the one you give username/password for).

If it's ok for all 12 to share permissions then you can do like this. If
you want each local user to have different permission on the server, then
you need one NT user for each (and one mount for each, possibly with the
help of autofs or making smbmnt setuid root).

Don't know what this is.
