[Samba] Can Map shares but cannot write

What happens if you try to mount a samba share via CIFS from linux (e.g. 
smbclient, mount -o cifs ?)   Or may be mount the drive in windows with 
the "net use" command.    Either way you explicitly set the domain/username.

Do any of the other log files refer to issues with mapping users?

What is the Host OS?  Guessing some linux varient?
