system A mounts the share just fine, but system B won’t?

mount -t cifs -o username=admin // /media/username/mointpoint/
dmesg; # reports
[17666.614556] CIFS: Attempting to mount \\\sharename
[17666.641743] CIFS: Status code returned 0xc000006d STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
[17666.641755] CIFS: VFS: \\ Send error in SessSetup = -13
[17666.641772] CIFS: VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -13

here is the fix X-D

hostnamectl; # tested on
Operating System: Debian GNU/Linux 12 (bookworm)  
          Kernel: Linux 6.1.0-13-amd64
    Architecture: x86-64

apt update
apt install cifs-utils

cifs-utils was simply not installed and the error message is missleading.
