I'm trying to connect to a Windows share using smbclient.

I'm entering the below output and receiving error (Error NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME).  The Linux OS is CentOS 6.  Any help is appreciated.

[root@guacamole ~]# smbclient // -U smithjo -W es
Enter smithjo's password:
Domain=[ES] OS=[Windows Server 2003 3790 Service Pack 2] Server=[Windows Server 2003 5.2]
Connection to NAD2NASFS01 failed (Error NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME)
[root@guacamole ~]#

I can ping
I cannot ping netbios names from the linux machine.

smbclient version is    3.5.10-116.el6_2

My user name on the domain is definitely smithjo.  The share \\\payroll is a valid share on the Windows machine.  I can use my es\smithjo account to access this share from other Windows machines.  I'm typing in the password I use for my domain account.  

If I leave the -W off, it still fails.
