You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I can't write to a samba share server when requesting the mount from
/etc/fstab. Read is ok, but writing returns:

  setting times of `/media/server/drive/a.txt': Invalid argument

Mounting the share from nautilus works ok.

I found a workaround :

Write a file "/etc/modprobe.d/cifs.conf"

  install cifs modprobe --ignore-install cifs && echo 1 >

That solved the problem. I wonder if that should be enabled by default
to everybody.
