  That's highly undesirable, as it breaks single-signon 
(unless you're an NT-cenric organization, which Sun isn't (:-))


|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
