Try something like
mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=password,workgroup=domain
you may also want to add ,ip=<Windows_server_IP> if it can't resolve the

I have a domain and both servers are members of the domain.
I want to access a windows share from the Red hat 8 server?
Do I use mount or smbmount?
I have been trying to use smbmount with the username option.
However, it keeps denying me access.
Here is what i type:
smbmount //windows_server/shared_folder /linux_local_folder username=davidj
After it asks for password, it rejects me with ErrMsg.
