this can happen if the guest account that samba uses is not present in the
/etc/passwd file. typically this is the user 'nobody', which some sites
remove from the /etc/passwd file for security purposes.
Do a testparm|grep "guest account" to see what your version of samba has
defined for the guest account, then make sure that that user is defined
in your /etc/passwd file.
Hope this helps,

Subject: smbclient error
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=22.214.171.124 bcast=126.96.36.199 nmask=255.255.255.224
added interface ip=192.168.1.6 bcast=192.168.1.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
session setup failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair
Tree Connect or Session Setup are invalid.)
Anyone have an idea why this happens?
