I am trying to set up samba on this host and testing it locally
is giving me headaches right away.

tom(a)hversa:~:~$ smbclient -L localhost -U%
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.4.8]

So, there is sth. configured, BUT:

tom(a)hversa:/var/log/samba$ smbclient //hversa/tom -d 3
lp_load_ex: refreshing parameters
Initialising global parameters
rlimit_max: rlimit_max (1024) below minimum Windows limit (16384)

I have googled for the NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE but this didn't help me.

Any hints please ...

Thanks Thomas
