I have a tangential question based upon your response about the credentials file.
I have set up a smbmount to happen on boot in /etc/fstab, but am looking for a good
way to not be prompted for the password, and not have the password in plaintext
in /etc/fstab, or in a credentials file. Do you know how I can acheive this?
Thanks for the help.

If it's only for one user you can create an autofs mount that mounts the
//server/share when you access it, without asking for password if you give
it one in the cfg file (or in a separate file using the credentials
