Linux Debian Cron Mount cifs issue

I created a root task through the gnome-schedule to run the script below. The issue is that I get error but can't see why it won't mount the cifs. I can run this script without issues from a root terminal. I entered the full path of the command like some people suggest. I am using the bash with the script name when I run it from gnome-schedule. I also created a new task that just mount the drive and it is failing.

Any help would be appreciated.



Here is the script
-------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash
/bin/mount -t cifs //x.x.x.x/syslog -o  username=myusername,password=mypassword /mnt/nfs

/bin/mkdir -p /mnt/nfs/dns/`hostname`-`date +%m-%d-%y`/etc/bind
/bin/mkdir -p /mnt/nfs/dns/`hostname`-`date +%m-%d-%y`/var/lib/bind

/bin/cp -r /etc/bind/* /mnt/nfs/dns/`hostname`-`date +%m-%d-%y`/etc/bind
/bin/cp -r /var/lib/bind/* /mnt/nfs/dns/`hostname`-`date +%m-%d-%y`/var/lib/bind

/bin/umount /mnt/nfs
--------------------------------------------

As it turns out the script run but without the mount so it copies everything but not on the network.

To reply to the comment... It does reconize it but not entirely. Are there logs anywhere?  The script works when it is being executed as root!
