Unable to mount Windows share due to error: can't read superblock - any ideas?

Unable to mount Windows share due to error: can't read superblock - any ideas?

Can anyone please help with the following ...

I need to mount an XP Windows share.

In the /etc/fstab I have the following entry, but it does not mount on reboot:

//192.150.150.69/import_export /internal/automation/mount cifs username=dave,password=xxxxxxx,_netdev 0 0

I then tried mounting manually, but got the following error:

[root@demo ~]# mount //192.150.150.69/import_export /internal/automation/mount -o username=dave,password=xxxxxxx
mount: //192.150.150.69/import_export: can't read superblock

This worked under RHEL 5.x however RHEL 7.2 is proving to be a problem.

Any ideas where I might be going wrong?

Best regards

I think you need to tell mount what type of file system is mounting. Add -t ntfs between the mount command and the device you want to mount.
