Hi and thanks for the replay.

here is my output from the command:

fileserver log/samba# smbclient -U% -L FASITET
added interface ip= <> bcast= <>
added interface ip= <>
bcast=<>nmask= <>
Client started (version 3.0.13-1.1-SUSE).
resolve_lmhosts: Attempting lmhosts lookup for name FASITET<0x20>

resolve_hosts: Attempting host lookup for name FASITET<0x20>
name_resolve_bcast: Attempting broadcast lookup for name FASITET<0x20>
Connection to FASITET failed

and the log.nmdb says:
