  Are you sure you have your //servername/netlogon share defined to share the
'/' partition? I don't use "domains", I have a simple standalone "workgroup"
setup. But, just for fun, I tried your suggestion:

12:24 providence:/etc/cups> sudo mount.cifs //phoinix/config /mnt/phx-cfg -o
mount error(13): Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

  Same result. Thanks for the idea though and I'm glad it is working for you.
