Samba client/server problem

We are currently starting to implement Samba in our UNIX and NT
I have installed three servers so far and all is well.

However, on one particular machine I am getting:

/samba/bin$ ./smbclient -L tree -U pcguest -N
Added interface ip= bcast=
Got a positive name query response from (
Session request failed (131,130) with myname=TREE destname=TREE
Called name not present
Try to connect to another name (instead of TREE)
You may find the -I option useful for this

when testing with smbclient.

The machine 'tree' appears in the NT network neighbourhood but then says
not found if you try to click on it.   I've been through DIAGNOSTICS.TXT
a million times and with this one I'm stumped.

The name query response is RIGHT.

Can you offer any advice?
