SAMBA and WebTrends

the message occurs in the samba logs for my windows machine when i try to run my webtrends reports using the samba datasource. so for example: i have a drive via from my unix box to my windows called d:/logs. webtrends uses that drive to pull the logs files it needs to create reports. the problem arises when it tries to authenticate the user accounts from unix to windows in the smbpasswd. not sure if that's the problem?

So what user and password does WebTrends use?
