When you use the state mount.mounted using persist: True and you have spaces in the name of the device, it saves the name with spaces in /etc/fstab but this file won't understand spaces.
For example:

    - device: //server/DATA/Factura\ Electronica/Factura\ Nacion
    - fstype: cifs
    - mkmnt: True
    - opts: credentials=/etc/credentials/srvprocess_user,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm
    - dump: 0
    - pass_num: 0
    - persist: True
    - mkmnt: True
    - require:
      - file: /etc/credentials/srvprocess_user
      - pkg: cifs-utils
      - file: /mnt/documents-dir

This example will mount the desired network share, but also add to fstab this line:

//server/DATA/Factura\ Electronica/Factura\ Nacion          /mnt/documents  cifs    credentials=/etc/credentials/srvprocess_user,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0

This will result in not mounting the share again when the system is restarted, because fstab needs another interpretation for whitespaces, is should be like this>

//srvgoogle3/DATA/Factura\040Electronica/Factura\040Nacion          /mnt/documents  cifs    credentials=/etc/credentials/srvprocess_user,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0

Maybe the best fix is to replace '\ ' with '\040' when writing this strings to fstab.
