cifs 1.1 smbclient does not ask for password

I installed CIFS 1.1 on vms 8.3 with vms83a_acrtl v4 and vms83a_update v6. When I try to use smbclient, it does not ask for the password:

BETA> smbclient --list pdc --user administrator
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

however, on another 8.3 vms box I installed T1.1 and it does ask for the password:

$ smbclient --list pdc --user administrator
