Mounting a shared drive using the Domain Controller Appliance

Hello, I'm setting up a domain using the Domain Controller Appliance.  One of the things I'd like to do is give each roaming prifile private disk space on our Network Attached Storage.

In order to do this, I believe that I must first mount the NAS (eventually, I'll edit fstab, but only after I get mount to work).  "sudo mount -t cifs -o username=user,password=pswd // /test" works, but I'd like to be able to use a credential file, which means I must use the mount.cifs form of the command.  However, mount.cifs does not appear in sbin or anywhere else on the system as far as I can tell. 

What should I do in order to use mount.cifs?  Is there another way of doing all this that I have overlooked?
