Can't get test 8 working

I have just installed the IRIX binary version (2.2.2) on an SGI Indy called "indy2"
which is running IRIX 6.5.10. I then started to work through the tests in
DIAGNOSIS.txt documents and all was well until test 8. To try to get things going I
reduced the smb.conf file to the following:
workgroup = indy2grp
guest ok = no
read only = no
path = /tmp
read only = yes
Test 8 uses the DOS command: "net view \\indy2" on a PC. The PC is running Windows
98 SE and is logged in to a Novell server with the same username and password as is
available on indy2. (Note that "smbclient -L indy2 -U'username%password'" on indy2
works fine.) net view fails with "Error 86: The specified network password is not
correct. Type the correct password....".
Eventually, after looking at the smbd code I switched on debugging at level 5 and
smbd logs the error "Null passwords not allowed" at smbd/password.c line 592.
What am I doing wrong? Surely my Windows 98 system should be using the password
which I used in the Netware login?
