Domain controller "rejected the session"

I have a problem trying to authenticate against an NT domain controller.

The following messages are from the Samba logs:  

switch message SMBnegprot (pid 3079)
Requested protocol [PC NETWORK PROGRAM 1.0]
Requested protocol [XENIX CORE]
Requested protocol [MICROSOFT NETWORKS 1.03]
Requested protocol [LANMAN1.0]
Requested protocol [Windows for Workgroups 3.1a]
Requested protocol [LM1.2X002]
Requested protocol [LANMAN2.1]
Requested protocol [NT LM 0.12]
Connecting to at port 139
connected to password server
write_socket(5,76) wrote 76 rejected the session
Selected protocol NT LM 0.12
10/13/00 15:03:25 negprot index=7

Its this "rejected the session" message that seems to be the problem. It doesn't appear to be getting to the point where the authentication occurs, the authentication session drops out before that. Any idea what could be causing this? 

Samba 1.9.16p11 on Solaris 5.3
Domain controller: NT4 Service Pack 4. 

Any help at all would be appreciated.
