FW: smbc_open error

Can you give me some help on the question below?

When using Samba from a C program to an NT server I give it the login token_administrator and it logs in as WORKGROUP/token_administrator and then I go to a 2008 server I give it token_administrator and it attempts to login as anonymous. Does the smb.conf have anything to do with that? See below...

;======================= Global Settings =====================================

; workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: REDHAT4
;   workgroup = Integration
   workgroup = UNITY

This and related questions would best be sent back to the mailing list. I don't think there's any difference from the user perspective when talking to Win2008, but I'm not an expert in that area.
