Hi I have tried to mount with three ways for all of them I got the same error.

1)

sudo chmod 777 /estore
sudo mount –t cifs -o user=domain/username%MYPASSWORD,noserverino //domain /estore

2)

sudo chmod 777 /estore
sudo mount –t cifs -o user=domain/username%MYPASSWORD,noserverino -rw //domain /estore

3)

sudo chmod 777 /estore
sudo mount –t cifs -o user=domain/username%MYPASSWORD,noserverino,umask=777 //domain /estore

Now what I am doing is just trying to create a folder such as mkdir /estore/asd and I am getting permission denied error. However when I do sudo mkdir /estore/asd then it creates a new folder. Even though I have done chmod 777 /estore, I am still getting this error. How can I fix that?

chmod -R 777 /estore would give full permissions to parent and all recursive folders.

For mounting issue, you should also check permissions for directory on source server.
