Unhappy Samba pdbedit command returns NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

Samba has been installed and set up on ubuntu 6.06.1 as standalone server.
I am having problems with users writing to their own userdirs.
Users can log on and open their own directory and a public folder but cannot write to either, permissions on directories are OK.

When following troubleshooting guide from samba3 howto, I entered the command:

smbclient -L //server

reply was Session setup failed NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

is this important - if so how do you fix it.
Perhap should add that when samba was installed it did not install smbclient or smbfs, I installed these separately after finding they were not present. dont know if this makes any difference.

contributing possibility -
when running pdbedit -Lv user
it lists the domain as the fileserver name not the domain name
when I would have expected it to return the workgroup name.

Any suggestions ?

Typically this is an authentication issue. Try using a -Uuser%password where this is a valid user to the computer/domain.
