smbfs / cifs in kernel 2.6.1



Hi --

I was disapointed, at first, to see that smbfs is not in the stock kernel, then I found this bug report that indicates that it has been replaced by cifs.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=116090

Fair enough. I don't mind changing to a different command. However, I can't get cifs stuff to mount....

Here is a mount command that works perfectly with smbfs:
mount -t smbfs -o username=user/DOMAIN //windowsbox/share /mnt/windows/windowsbox/share


If I change smbfs to cifs, I get this result:
mount: Connection refused

What am I missing here? Did I screw up the syntax for the mount, or is cifs not actually a drop-in replacement for smbfs? The machine I'm trying to connect to is part of an Active Directory realm, but the AD is in "mixed mode" and I have verified -- by rebuilding the kernel with smbfs support -- that that command works with the same kernel, same machine, FC 2 test.
