I configurured my Redhat7.2/PC as a
samba server. It works where except
that the non-root user could not change
their password. Only root can change the
samba password. Even, the samba password
and the unix must be the same, otherwise
that user will not be able to access samba

The error message while using smbpasswd is:
"machine rejected the session setup. Error was : ERRSRV -
-- I am sure I entered the correct passwords.

My smb.conf:
# Global parameters
        workgroup = Workgroup
        netbios name = FS
        server string = Samba Server
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        unix password sync = Yes
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        max log size = 50
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        domain logons = No
        dns proxy = No
        guest account =
#       hosts deny = ALL
        hosts allow = 172.16.
        printing = lprng

        comment = Home Directories
        valid users = %S
        read only = No
        create mask = 0664
        directory mask = 0775
        browseable = No

        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        guest ok = Yes
        printable = Yes
        browseable = No

        comment = Public Stuff
        path = /home/pub
        write list = @staff
        valid users = @staff
        create mask = 0777
        directory mask = 0777
