Can you put a level 10 debug log that contains only the try of 
connecting to \\servername to http://cpaste.org/ or some other paste 

Add the following to your smb.conf (if you haven't already done):
         log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
         debug pid = yes
         log level = 10
         max log size = 0

Then restart Samba.

Empty the client log file directly before you start the connection try, 
so it contains as less as possible things that doesn't have to do with 
the \\server connect.

Then we can have a look at it and maybe see what's wrong.
