Not really. For me it looks like authentication somehow does not work. However, even guest access is impossible.
Today I updated to 10.8.2 with high hopes that Apple resolved my issue. But they didn't.
Of course I can access the ML SMB server from my Macs... I haven't tried Windows though.

There are plenty of SMB issues with Apple's file server. Try using SMBup and it should install Samba and get everything set up. It is frustrating because it should work perfectly. With SMBup I do have to turn it on each time I reboot.
There may be another issue with yours specifically. I couldn't get it to work with the netbios name until I renamed the server (Apple SMB implementation, not Samba)
I was able to get clients to connect but they would disconnect within minutes from Adobe Indesign within Windows. I switched the server to Samba and it's worked great since then.

Thanks for your reply. While SMBup seems a great idea, it does not work for me.
Problem is that I cannot configure users properly. I created another user and no matter what I do, it doesn't show up. Also other useraccounts don't show up.
And of course the ability of selecting groups is lacking. But for my situation that's not a problem.
Only four of my useraccounts are showing up at the 'Manage Users' section of this app. Also, it it's last update is older then ML launch date. So I doubt it's fully compatible with ML.
Maybe I can confgure the users by editing the SMB conf file.

I seriously evaluated SMBup and it turns out to be completely unreliable.
SMB tends to crash constantly or won't start at all, even with the simplest share configured.
Looks like it's back to SL server for me.

I don't know if you are aware that SMBup 1.4.1 installs Samba 3.2.15 from Macports .. also If want to start automatically you need to download the launchctl files within the install of SMBup.
The original author of SMBup.. worked with Samba 3.2.15 since that was the only samba version available at that time through Macports over a year ago.
I haven't tried it yet, but I was considering installing Samba 3.6.7 through Macports on top of SMBUp... I don't know if anyone has tried that yet.
I just not going to do it on my production machine.... might do it on a testbed machine soon.

I have had great luck with SMBup. I'm on 10.8.2. I had an issue for a while (after reboot Samba wouldn't be started), but Apple's SMB was messing with Samba even though SMBup said it was uninstalling or disabling Apple's SMB. I went into System preferences/sharing and turned off the SMB and that worked well even after restart. I haven't had any reliability problems with it for clients.

I just came across this post. I've read that ML requires the nounix,sec=ntlmssp options to be used. I've had some success with that but haven't fully tested.
