[Samba] Samba 3.5 & CIFS mounts - long standing issue...

I can see that this is a long long standing issue... Apparently things 
changed in Windows 2008 R2, and after upgrade of domain from R1 to R2 
cifs mounts don't work anymore between Linux servers. Windows can see 
Samba shares and mount them, but CIFS on another Linux box cannot...

Here is a thread with explanation in lenght:

I get the exact same logs and errors... I've tested with smbclient and 
everything works but with CIFS - no way :(

Has anybody succeded in solving this one?

Mount with CIFS:
#  mount -t cifs //server/share /mnt -o 
username=jakov.sosic,password=*******,domain=mydomain -v

mount.cifs kernel mount options: 
mount error(13): Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

Login with smbclient:

# smbclient -U jakov.sosic //server/share
Enter Administrator's password:
Domain=[MYDOMAIN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.5.4-0.83.el5_7.2]
smb: \>

I've tried adding various mount parameters like sec=ntlmv2, 
credentials=/path/to/file, but every attempt fails.

Any ideas?!?!!

Samba is version 3.5.4 on CentOS 5.7 on both Linux machines.
