He doesn't (hopefully).  You have to device some "migration" scheme to get
smbpasswd updated.  I added all the users to smbpasswd with null passowrds,
 expired everyones UNIX password, and hot wired NIS to update SMB as well.
 Within a few days almost all the Samba passwords were set,  then I switched on
encrypted passwords.  There is no automatic way to move the passwords from UNIX
to SMB, as all the hashes are ONE WAY.
