Description Christian Perrier 2007-04-24 08:58:50 UTC
This is Debian bug #400734:

man 8 mount.cifs suggests that a credentials file can only contain
username and password fields.

It can, however, actually also include a workgroup field.

Which is important if a Windows file server suddenly stops accepting
user@domain as username but insists on username user and workgroup
