This is using the Samba 3.0 CVS branch or one of the alpha snapshots?
You have seen the howto describing how to set this up for smbclient?
And possibly done that so that you can connect with smbclient?

There is a small patch needed for samba 3.0 (I have one vs the
3.0-alpha17 snapshot) to enable smbmount to connect to a windows server
in AD.

You also need a kernel patch to enable NT status codes for smbfs. I have
one for 2.4.19, but there was some mismatch in it so it would give the
wrong error code if a file didn't exist and that made it impossible to
create new files.

I can send you these patches, or if you wait a bit updated ones for the
latest versions. But if you haven't made smbclient work you should
probably start there. I can dig up the URL to the Samba-AD document if 
you don't have it.
