Hi Tony,
Another workaround would be to populate an smbpasswd file with all the names

from your /etc/passwd file.
But I realize this can be onerous.  Samba has a script to help with this,
since you won't be needing passwords from this smbpasswd file, this would do
it for you, I think....  if your distribution doesn't install this script,
can be found in the source at /usr/local/samba/source/script/mksmbpasswd.sh


cat /etc/passwd|./mksmbpasswd.sh >/usr/local/samba/var/private/smbpasswd

Hope this helps
