Maybe your Google is broken. =) The string "mount_smbfs: unable to open connection: syserr = RPC struct is bad" returned ten or so relevant results including...[EMAIL PROTECTED]/msg41941.html

Looks as though the Windoze user that you are connecting with has a password that is about to expire. Depending on your security policy, maybe consider checking "Password never expires" for that user.

Hope this helps...

This system was working for about a month.  But now, every time I issue the mount_smbfs
command I get....

"mount_smbfs: unable to open connection: syserr = RPC struct is bad"

In /var/log/messages I see...

"/kernel: smb_maperror: Unmapped error 2:2242"

Absolutely nothing has changed on either the FreeBSD box or the Windows 2000 server.
In fact, neither box had even been rebooted until the discovery of this problem.
Subsequently, each box was bounced once, but to no avail.

I've googled on both phrases but have found nothing.  Can anyone shed light on
this or, perhaps, point me in the right direction?
