Hi All,

I have an issue which I see in google that many have with no apparent

I can use smbclient to browse out windows 2003 and windows 2000 servers.

When I do a 

mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator,password=-------
//whadvapp/imports /mnt/imports

It fails with the following:

Unknown parameter encountered: "force create mask"
Ignoring unknown parameter "force create mask"
Unknown parameter encountered: "force directory mask"
Ignoring unknown parameter "force directory mask"
24742: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed

I assume that the top 4 lines about ignoring unknown parameters doesn't
matter because I can mount an windows XP box fine.

Samba is part of our active directory and people are using it from their
windows clients.

Samba version:

Running on RHEL3.

Any ideas?
