Is there a limit to the size of the CIFS share you can mount?

I have a users who was previously able to mount one of our cifs shares, but once I extended the size of the share from 6TB to 8TB, he receives a NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED listing \* message when he to do a dir listing.

when he tries to mount to a subfolder within that share he receives

tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME.

This is seen on two Ubuntu machines now.

The only thing that has changed is the size of the Share.
