many days mounting Windows shares form a Linux server worked well. Since  
yesterday, samba (mount.cifs and smbmount) may no more mount the shares  
of one of my Windows clients.

Samba 3.0.33 and 3.2.7, Windows 2000 and Windows XP Home

Command line is

mount.cifs -v //Think22/Think22-C /tmp/T22-C -o "username=Think22/hhullen,password=xxyy,servern=THINK22"


mount.cifs -v //Think22/Think22-C /tmp/T22-C -o "username=Think22/hhullen,password=xxyy,servern=THINK22,ip="


    smbclient -N -L Think22

The mount commands tell (respectively):

parsing options: username=Think22/hhullen,password=xxyy,servern=THINK22

Mounting the DFS root for domain not implemented yet
No ip address specified and hostname not found


parsing options: username=Think22/hhullen,password=xxyy,servern=THINK22,ip=
ip address override specified

Mounting the DFS root for domain not implemented yet
mount error: can not change directory into mount target //Think22/Think22-C


Where is the bug?

On another Windows client (Windows 2000) the same command works fine.

Viele Gruesse!
