Hi again,

yup, got the OS/2-server running... :-)

I'm able to mount using *both* opensuse 12.3 and 13.1.
I also checked reading and writing....

The only thing i had to add to the mount cmd now was the ip-address "ip=",
but that could have many reasons compared to my formerly used environments.
I used the following mount command:

mount -t cifs //server01/UG /mnt/server -o

Note that i also specified (for years) "port=139".

In case you don't get it running, as root use the following when the cifs.ko kernel module
has already been loaded (otherwise first use: modprobe cifs)
   echo 7 > /proc/fs/cifs/cifsFYI
This enables the highest cifs module debug level, which you then can watch (during mount) with
   tail -f /var/log/messages

Good luck!

Cheers, Günter
