If you have Samba 3.0.2 or later running - smbclient supports SMB/CIFS
signing and therefore check_disk_smb works fine W2k3 domain shares
The only patch needed is to redirect the STDERR of smbclient so the
domain,OS and version info is discarded.
On linux 2.6 kernels this works fine, 2.4 kernels need the CIFS VFS
patch. Not supported on other unices.
