I am having issues joining my Fedora 10 box to our domain. These are the steps i have already completed
Logged in as su
setup Windbind Support
Disabled Firewall
Joined domain successfully
mkdir /mnt/windows - successful
mount -t cifs //<Server (I tried IP and server name)> /mnt/windows -o username=<tried several domain accounts> - unsuccessful

Mounting the DFS root for a particular server not implemented yet
No ip address specified and the hostname not found

Can anyone help me out with this issue?

mount -t cifs //windows_server/remote_share -o username=Myusername,password=Mypassword /mnt/local_folder

or

mount -t cifs //windows_server/remote_share -o username=Myusername,password=Mypassword /mnt/windows ??

no suppose you have created a share on windows which is "myshare" and pc ip is 192.168.1.2

so it shoudl be like this

mount -t cifs //192.168.1.2/myshare -o username=Myusername,password=Mypassword /mnt/windows
