If you get an
Access Denied error when attempting to access or view SMB shares from a server, the password you supplied might be wrong or the SMB server might be part of a different domain.
If the SMB server and SMB client are in different domains, you must provide the domain name for the
smbadm show-shares or
mount command. Otherwise, the server assumes that you are attempting to authenticate a local user, and the authentication process fails.
For example, if the server
solarsystem is in the
mydomain domain, the following commands would be appropriate to view and access SMB shares as user
$ smbadm show-shares -u "auser@mydomain" solarsystem $ mount -F smbfs -o user=auser,domain=mydomain //solarsystem/tmp /mnt
