Does anyone have an easy way to mount a Windows share in AIX?  I've seen multiple posts regarding CIFS, but most are ancient (using AIX 5 or 6 and/or Windows 2008 and earlier).  I am using AIX 7.2 and need to mount from both Windows 2008 and 2012 Server.  We are getting the "There was an error connecting the share or the server. Make sure the lsdev command shows that device nsmb0 is in..." message and I've seen several pages address it, but none successfully beyond AIX 7.
