I have a share on a Data Domain and my Windows Servers can access it, but my HP-UX box cannot

I know they are different file systems, but what am I missing as it is a valid share if I can get to it from Windows.
What am I missing on the HP-UX side?

So your CIFS connection should look like

cifsmount -Uuser -Ppassword -Ddomain //RemoteServerName/NTFSShareName

If you want to mount a folder beneath the share, that folder on the NTFS filesystem MUST be shared and you MUST use that share name.  HP-UX CIFS does not allow for mounting subfolders.

Are you using CIFS or SAMBA to mount the share on HP-UX?
Can you ping the Windows server with the shared resource from the HP-UX box using the Windows hostname?
How are you passing authentication credentials from the HP-UX box to the Windows box?  Does this user account have appropriate access at both the share and NTFS level?
What does the line in your mount file look like for the Windows share?

assuming you are using native nfs for the HP-UX box, you need to export the share as nfs on the data domain and add that host to be able to mount it

Using CIFS
We can connect to it but not write to it
# cifslogin usser5 -U admina

we get error LC: Connection Lost, but can mount and list CIFS.  It is the login that results in this error

Thus we are on to trying via NFS, but the issue is with HP-UX I do not know how to specify a username/password during the connection
