[Samba] Cannot mount a remote volume after system upgrade

openSUSE v13.1
linux 3.11.10-11-desktop x86_64
samba 4.1.6

  I recently upgraded an openSUSE server from v12.3 to v13.1. In the
older version there was no problem about mounting a remote volume
offered by an ancient OS/2 system. Now there is.

  Trying to mount it by command line:
root:/home/sma-user3x> mount /t2
Retrying with upper case share name
mount error(6): No such device or address
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

  In /var/log/messages:
2014-06-06T16:49:27.540111-07:00 sma-server3 kernel: \
  [501348.943600] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -6

  Here is the /etc/fstab entry:
//sma-server1/pub-data  /t2 cifs \
  credentials=/home/sma-user3x/.smb/.smbpw, \
  uid=sma-user4,gid=users,file_mode=0664,dir_mode=0775, \
  sec=lanman,servern=SMA-SERVER1,nocase,noperm,nounix,noserverino 0 0

  Any suggestions or changes that will allow the remote volume to mount?
