That looks ok.
It has been several years since I used the cifs, and I know you are
running a windows server, but with samba as the server I used these
map to guest = Bad Password
guest account = root
comment = debian-live server
path = /path/to/live
read only = yes
guest ok = yes
locking = no
Do the logs on the windows server show any attempts to connect?
