So, the log message 'Defaulting to Lanman password for XYZ'
means that smbd is checking my password hash against Lanman
hash in smbpasswd(5) or /etc/shadow ?
If I leave smb.conf(5) without "encrypt passwords" then it
should be set (by smbd run-time) to "yes". What is the
default hash the smbd uses then ?
I assume, samba is compiled without any special parameters.
