Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 10/09 U8 to 11 u1 10/12 [Release 10.0 to 11.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The smbclient command would fail to authenticate the Samba or Windows Domain User and return a NT_STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER error.

# smbclient //server.domain.com/share -U username -W DOMAIN
Enter username's password:
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER


A smbclient run with the debug level 5 option, -d 5, would return the following output:

# smbclient -d 5 -L server.domain.com  -U username -W DOMAIN
