Bug 905929 nobody is interested in fixing it apparently..

NTLM has been found to be insecure so upstream doesn't want to allow NTLM connections by default any more. There may be something you can do at the server end to use NTLMv2 instead; that would probably be safer than forcing the use of NTLM

To work around this add sec=ntlm to your mount options

Thank you. Adding sec=ntlm to my mount options solves the problem. Make changes on server will try later.
