My CIFS mount for ISOs stopped working recently. I tried to detatch it and re-attach it, however I get the following error:

I tried looking this error up, however I cannot conclusively determine what is failing. I have restarted the host xenserver as well as the host serving the target. So far as I can tell this is the only issue that is observed with our CIFS mounts. Furthermore, I tried manually unmounting the target at the CLI, but I don't recall the exact method I used.

xenserver 6.0.0-50762p

I do not know what exactly caused this issue as other services have not been affected.

I think I'm just going to upgrade my version of xenserver. I cannot find a solution to this problem anywhere. :( – BloodyIron Oct 24 '12 at 20:29
Have you tried to just destroy the sr and recreate it? – portforwardpodcast Feb 20 '13 at 11:29
Hey sorry about this, it turns out it was an auth issue. I was not properly authenticating. Once I got a functional account it worked right away. – BloodyIron Feb 21 '13 at 19:20

This turned out to be a permission issue on the share end. I was not using the correct credentials. I needed to use an Active Directory account and once I did it was resolved.
