Hello seeing the following errors in my /var/log/mEssages file

Samba 3.06
RH 2.4.21-20 kernel
Connection to Network Appliance Filesystem

Oct 30 19:37:00 sc8-a7-lri1 kernel: smb_get_length: recv error = 512
Oct 30 19:37:00 sc8-a7-lri1 kernel: smb_request: result -512, setting
Oct 30 19:37:00 sc8-a7-lri1 kernel: smb_retry: caught signal
Oct 30 19:37:00 sc8-a7-lri1 last message repeated 28 times

Not sure what is wrong, not seeing any impact, but I see this at odd times.

My smb.conf is more for the smbmount, so it's basically a client not a
server connection.. What setting is invalid?

And my mount command is as follows (get this error on initial mount as well)

//sc8-e6-na-site/ltest  /usr/local/site       smbfs
credentials=/etc/passwd.smbfs,uid=rsvp,gid=rsvp 0 0

That's it, what in here is giving me the setting invalid?
