I am attempting to integrate a Linux Samba Server with an NT 4.0 PDC.
Ideally I am looking to authenticate the users on the PDC, and then
permit access to the Samba Shares on the Linux Box.  I have several
issues, but the one which is presenting itself currently is when I
attempt to Browse the PDC using smbclient.  I get the following:

 smbclient -L dumbo
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=

session request to DUMBO failed (Called name not present)
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[FCCA.COM] OS=[Windows NT 4.0] Server=[NT LAN Manager 4.0]

        Sharename      Type      Comment
        ---------      ----      -------
Error returning browse list: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------

Dumbo is the DNS Name of the PDC.  Why Do I get the
NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED message?  I get this same message when I attempt
to use the Samba Share as an NT PDC User (using the Username and
password as well).

Your assistance is appreciated.
