Tree connect failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw

Can anyone help me?

I have Samba 2.0.5a running on SuSE Linux 6.0 (2.0.36) and
Windows NT Server 4.0 SP4 (PDC).

When I try to do a "smbclient -L MYUNIX" (according to the trouble
shooting guide) I get the following message:

Addes interface bcast= nmask=
Domain=[MYDOMAIN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.0.5a]
tree connect failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair in
a Tree Connect or Session Setup are invalied.)

I added my Linux machine to the NT Domain, and even if I try
to do "smbclient -L MYUNIX -U myuser" and enter the correct
password, I get this error message. But if I do "smbclient
-L MYWINNT -U myuser", I get the list of shares on the NT
machine. "myuser" is a regular user in Linux.

What can be the reason of this? Any idea?
