Samba:Unable to fetch machine password

I have used
smbclient ////server//service -P -Uuser%password
to send print to a special printer on samba clients for some time.
But now on a new Fedora3 sever I try the same to a printer on Win2000 I this error:
Unable to fetch machine password

the user and password seams to work on :
smbclient -L server -Uuser%password
I find all shares, also "service".

With regards
