This is a W2K3 issue...

By default, the Windows Server 2003 Domain Controllers require SMB signing
which in this case prevents you from doing multiple mounts with different
users. You have 2 workarounds for this:

1) Disable SMB signing on W2K3:

- From "Administrative Tools" open "Domain Controller Security Policy"
- Select "Local Policies" ---> "Security Options" folder
- Double-click "Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications
(always)", and then click Disabled to prevent SMB packet signing
from being required.
- Click OK.
- Reboot or run "gpupdate" to apply the Group Policy change.

2) Leave SMB signing enabled on W2K3 and apply a cifs patch (I haven't
tested this):

hope this helps,
