 I'm using SMBFS on FreeBSD 4.9-PRERELEASE from 2003-09-18, and running

 world update (to catch security patches) and accompanying mergemaster.

I've just tried with FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE, using today's sources and I
still get:

 # mount /smb/foo
 smbfs: unable to open connection: syserr = RPC struct is bad

Backups are suffering.  Any ideas (even shots in the dark) would be
helpful.

Thanks,
Sheldon.

Found the problem.

The Windows user backup, as which the FreeBSD box authenticates when
mounting the Windows shares, was created on the domain controller
without Password never expires enabled, and the business concerned
doesn't have a password recycling policy designed to handle automatic
password expiry of system accounts.

SMBFS expects one of several responses to the authentication phase, but
your password has expired, please change it isn't one of them.  I'll
send my findings to Boris, the author of our SMBFS support.

At least this is in the archives, now. :-)

Ciao,
Sheldon.
