using the mount command to connect to a windows share

Until recently I have been using the following command successfully to connect to a windows share:

mount -t smbfs -o username=my_username,password=my_password /home/temp //oldserverx1/openexchange

But from today, I've been getting the following error:

INFO: Debug class all level = 1 (pid 21390 from pid 21390)
Could not resolve mount point //oldserverx1/openexchange

(I have the IP address, full machine name and short machine name entered in /etc/hosts and I can ping the machine.)

Anyone have any ideas what might have changed?

Try this instead:
mount -t smbfs -o username=my_user_name,password=password //oldserver/openexchange /home/temp/
