I try to tune mounting and give next error in /var/log/messages:

How are you trying to mount? Manually or do you have a entry in /etc/fstab? Give the command or the content of your /etc/fstab file. –  socken23 Nov 10 '10 at 9:16
    
VIA AUTOFS. There are no problem in mounting manual or via fstab. –  vitaly.v.ch Nov 11 '10 at 8:16
