I believe samba will reset the permissions on the smbpasswd file. IIRC, Luke
stated you must be root.

root and administrator are both members of the "Domain Admins" group, while
they are also members of the "Domain Users" group, as are a few other


I have used samedit to set the password for administrator correctly, and I
have changed the group owner for private/smbpasswd to domainadmins which is
mapped to from "Domain Admins", and have done a chmod 660 on
privat/smbpasswd as well.
