NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE.

I got the above mentioned error message when testing my samba configuration at the linux server
smbclient //linux/user
I don't get this error when I us
smbclient //linux/root

or when I use the following command I found somewhere on the internet

smbclient //linux/username -W USERS -U username

This syntax is not very helpfull when trying to connect with a windows client. What do I need to change in order to log on with the normal smbclient //linux/user syntax

I looked at the explanation under NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE in experts exchange, but this didn't do the trick

attached my smb.conf
# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented
# version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the
# samba-doc package is installed.
