I am new to samba and need some help from the samba experts.
I have installed, configured and running samba 2.03 on IRIX 6.5
It is working pretty well with encrypted password on.
I have converted the /etc/passwd file to smbpasswd with mksmbpasswd
script which generated 32X's format as stated in the documentation.
Now the problems is, this smbpasswd file generated is not the encrypted
password hence I have to issue the command
smbpasswd -U username
New smbpasswd ******
before the smbpasswd file can be converted to an encrypted one without
Doing this manually for all users will be a time consuming task
considering the number of user accounts that is on my system.
I would therefore be glad if anyone out there could help me with an
easier way of generating the encrypted smbpasswd from either the
/etc/passwd or /etc/shadow password file without the 32X's but the
encrypted smbpasswd file.
