Just created a new backup server using CentOS 5.0. I am using a auth file
to access windows shares for backups. When connecting like this
smbclient //server/share -A=/auth/file
it works.

When I try to tar with smbclient like this
smbclinet //server/share -A=/auth/file -Tc /backup/tarfile.tar
I get the following message.....
session_setup_failed : NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

Am I doing something wrong? This worked just find with the older versions
of Fedora and CentOS.
