The is caused by the client not being able to resolve
the DOMAIN<1b> netbios name. If the server and client are
on the same subnet, you should not get this error message
(although I can think of circumstances where you would).
If the two are on different subnets, then you will need
to use either a WINS server or local LMHOSTS files to
help the client resolve the name.
