acting on information supplied by a Canadian guy who has been messing with
Samba and Win NT, I entered the following command at a Linux console :-)
grep XXX /etc/smbpasswd | head -1 | cut -f3 -d: | wc
and received the following:
1 1 33
Same happens if I look for -f4 in the cut above.
The documentation says something about it being super critical that there
be *exactly* 32 X's.
So, just how important is this?
