NFS clients fail to mount or access Windows-style directories when CIFS auditing is enabled.

Linux clients might report errors similar to the following:
touch: cannot touch `/mnt/xxxx': Permission denied

Controller log in /etc/messages will report similar logs:
Wed Sep 9 22:42:57 CST []: User Identifier (UID) (0) to Windows Security Identifier (SID) mapping failed. Access is denied to NFSvX operation (v3 create) from host (X.X.X.X) because CIFS auditing is enabled
