Was trying to use autofs on ubuntu and mounting a samba shared failed.

Then, i came across a note that 'unless you need to authenticate to cifs'
-- wish I could find the exact quote now. The point is autofs fails to
mount a windows server share. I can mount the share using mount.cifs but it
fails with autofs. So I just thought I would check to see if anyone has
pointers on using autofs on ubuntu 16 .
