OS X 10.9 Mavericks fails to connect to a CIFS server by entering:

The following error is observed :
Error: "There are no shares available or you are not allowed to access them on the server. Please contact your system administrator to resolve the problem"



Rather than entering cifs://servername specify the volume as well. 
E.g.: cifs://servername/vol1

Note :
This has been resolved with the public release of the 'May 2014 OES11SP1 Scheduled Maintenance Update'.
