Smbpasswd failing for users

Anyone have a fix for this?

Im having a problem w/ my users being able to change their SMB password. 
What is the best approach to allow users acces to smbpasswd to change 
their own passwords when they want?

Right now Im getting the following error:

machine rejected the (anonymous) password change: Error was : 
Wrong Password.
Failed to change password for donald

Here is my global from the smb.conf

      netbios name = WOOT
      socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 
      server string = SMB v3.0.14a
      local master = yes
      preferred master = yes
      domain logons = no
      domain master = no
      workgroup = Puddin
      interfaces =
      bind interfaces only = no
      log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
      log level = 2
      max log size = 50
      lock directory = /var/lock/samba
      printcap name = /etc/printcap
      wins support = no
      wins server =
      os level = 62
      remote announce =
      deadtime = 15

Thank you
