after further investigation i have new details:

the problem only appears if the username is mapped with a username map. Example:

<serveruser> = <clientuser>
valid users = <serveruser>
smbclient -U <serveruser> ...
->everything is ok

smbclient -U <clientuser> ...
->tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

in the serverlog:
User <serveruser> not in 'valid users'

The server recognize the mapping, because the translated username is in the log.

You asked me to post the smbclient log. Do you really want this log, because the error message (User andi not in 'valid users') is from the server log.
