not feasible, as PASSWD env var is already used.
And anyway, by using it I have the same error:

[calin@calin ~]$ sudo mount //sambaserver/share /local/mountpoint -o
username=USER
mount: block device //sambaserver/share is write-protected, mounting
read-only
mount: cannot mount block device //sambaserver/share read-only

Now this becomes weirder:


[calin@calin ~]$ man mount.cifs
No manual entry for mount.cifs

[calin@calin ~]$ yum search mount.cifs
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, remove-with-leaves, security
Warning: No matches found for: mount.cifs
No Matches found

man mount:

Mount options for cifs
See the options section of the mount.cifs(8) man page
(samba-client package
must be installed).

[calin@calin ~]$ yum list samba-client
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, remove-with-leaves, security
Installed Packages
samba-client.x86_64 3.5.4-62.fc13

Any ideea where I could find that man for mount.cifs? :)

Fedora 13 Samba weirdness
 
1.* create a file anyware containing your credentials (I used /etc/.smbcreds) mybe use a place that only you can access
*** Formate it like this
*** username=yourusername
*** password=yourpassword

2.* run the mount command like this


*** mount -t cifs //server_ip/share /yourmountpoint/ -o credentials=/etc/.smbcreds

I use this on fedora 13 with no problems and no password in the mount command output

hope it helps

Yes, provide the password via PASSWD environment variable or via a
credentials file. man mount.cifs

Actually, I discovered that I don't have cifs-utils package installed.
Now it works as it supposed to: prompting for a password at the console.

Vastly, I haven't had the problem but I now have a pointer in my tips file, so
when someone asks I can look smart. ;-)

Many thanks.
