[Samba] Samba share to access windows folders in linux.

I am trying to access folders on a windows system on a linux system using
the command,
smbmount '//a.b.c.d/CCViews/abcd/abcd_Linux_dev' '/root/pqrs/LinuxDev' -o
This prompts for a password and I give the correct domain password here. It
gives me the error:
21896: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an
invalid share name)
However, if I try to access some other folder other than the folders under
CCViews(highlighted above) on the same machine, I am able to make the samba
(Note that CCViews is a folder having clearcase views of different people)
Any help is greatly appreciated.
