My system keeps telling me that theres no such entry. However I found
an example under /usr/share/examples/smbfs nad copied/renamed it to

I edited the file and changed all values to reflect my system. Then I
mount_smbfs //username@servername/sharename /mountpoint

and still it asks for a password.

Any advice is welcome.
