[CentOS] Problem mounting CIFS shares with credential file afterSAMBA update

Hello

I've just solved this (because i remembered what happened last time)

The problem is that the credentials file must be being parsed 
incorrectly and any char after the password is passed as part of 
password (don't know if you understand me because my poor english).

What i did is editing the .credentials file with an hex editor and 
deleting everything after the last character in the password.

I've used ghex (yum install ghex) (ghex2 /path/to/.credentials)

You'll find anything before the last password character (in my case was 
0A (represented as a dot (.) ) in the ascii panel. Then goto the Ascii 
view (the right) and delete that dot, the (0A in hex becomes 0).

That worked for me and this is being mounted on reboot without problems.

Tell here if this worked for you.

Best
