Um. I hope the above commandline was miscopied. If not, you've just
overwritten your system password file with Samba-specific password data.
You'll need to recover your original /etc/passwd file, or your system will
likely be completely unusable after you log out.
The mksmbpasswd.sh script is for making an *SMB* password file, which is a
separate file on the system (with a location configurable via the 'smb passwd
file' directive in smb.conf).
Also, making the smbpasswd file isn't enough to let you use encrypted
passwords; you also have to populate the file with actual encrypted passwords.
The smbpasswd command should help you with this.
