Description Janis Meybohm univentionstaff 2015-08-25 12:16:13 CEST

cifs-utils is in unmaintained for UCS 4.
The package contains (among others) mount.cifs so it probably should be in maintained.

Customer feedback at Ticket#2018042721000727

UCS is not able to mount remote Windows shares per default. Reason is the missing cifs-utils on UCS.

Please move the package to maintained and install it on UCS per default.
