[Samba] smbmount and 2215

Hello. I have a samba server setup with 3.0.2a-r1.

It was working just fine, then suddenly, I cannot connect to any of my shares 
on my server with smbmount. Everytime I try to connect, I get this error:

session setup failed: ERRDOS - 2215

I do something like this: smbmount //myserver/share /mnt/misc -o 

The password prompt comes up, I put it in, it hangs for about 10 seconds, then 
spits out the above error.

The log file doesn't say much, but here it is:

2004/05/26 16:38:31, 0] smbd/server.c:main(747)
  smbd version 3.0.2a started.

[2004/05/26 16:39:19, 0] smbd/connection.c:register_message_flags(220)
  register_message_flags: tdb_fetch failed

I am totally stumped... My windows machines can still hit these shares, but I 
cannot use smbmount.

I have tested this from several clients, with versions of sbmclient all the 
way down to 2.0.7.

I have mounted shares from my other servers sucessfully -- it is just when 
trying to mount shares from this one machine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
