I've installed Samba on AIX 4.3 machine named ibmf40, and the domain name is

This is how the smb.conf file looks:

   netbios name = ibmf40
   workgroup = vercom
   server string = Samba Server
   security = user

However I get an error when trying to run smbclient as follows:

ibmf40 /usr/local/samba/bin # ./smbclient -L ibmf40 -N
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
session setup failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair
in a
Tree Connect or Session Setup are invalid.)

Anyone have an idea why this happens?
