Thank you for your suggestion!
I discovered that I did not have kdestroy installed. I downloaded and built
it, but kdestroy returns the error:
"kdestroy: No credentials cache found while destroying cache"
I think I am not using kerberos however with mount.cifs, since doing 'cat
/proc/fs/cifs/SecurityFlags' returns '0x7' (i.e. bit 4 indicating 'may use
kerberos' is not set). Attempting to set bit 4 (e.g. by 'echo 15 >
/proc/fs/cifs/SecurityFlags') returns the error:
"CIFS VFS: attempt to set unsupported security flags 0x8"
I have also tried using the "-o noperm" and "-S" options in mount.cifs, with
I'm afraid I am not much closer to success, but I have learnt a lot more, so
that is good at least!
