Samba accessing problem

What is your authentication method (ADS, server, share, user)?  If it is
ADS, can you connect to the IP rather than the FQDN?  If so, you may
have a Kerberos problem (as connecting directly to the IP will force
authentication via NTLM rather than Kerberos).  Check time skew on the
server and check to see if you can obtain a kerberos ticket (using
kinit).  We had this problem once before and it turned out to be a
problem with ntpd not syncing with our domain time server, thereby
causing a time skew.
