Look at SmbSession.logon, something like this:

NtlmPasswordAuthentication auth =
        new NtlmPasswordAuthentication("domain", "username", "password");
UniAddress dc = UniAddress.getByName("pdcname");
try {
    SmbSession.logon(dc, auth);
    return true;
} catch (SmbException ex) {
    return false;
