Shares not accessible?

Hi there,

I can't connect to shares from machines in our samba-domain (with 
today's cvs code). I can logon to those machines though.

The shares on machines that joined the domain are not accessible 
from either machines inside or outside the domain. The error 
messages are "\\pc is not accessible. The server service is not 
started" in Netneighborhood; smbclient tells me this:
Domain=[FD] OS=[Windows NT 4.0] Server=[NT LAN Manager 4.0]
tree connect failed: ERRSRV - ERRbaduid (The UID is not known as a valid ID on this session.)

Any clues? Hopefully it's not a faq...


Here is the setup:
Linux 2.2.0-pre4 with today's cvs
NT4 SP3 client (german)
NT4 SP4 client (german)
