Hi

You can also use kerberos to authenticate against a windows-server and mount a smb-share. This prevents you to put a password in a file. You just need to 'kinit' (follow by entering your pw) and then mount the smb-share.

1) Place a valid configuration in /etc/krb5.conf
2) /usr/bin/kinit [ad-user]
3) /sbin/mount.cifs //windows-server/share /mnt -o sec=krb5,user=[ad-user],uid=[enter here the unix-uid]

This should work.
Kind regards,
Tom
