smbpasswd question

Do you have to enable encrypted passwords for smbpasswd to work? I 
have yet to enable encryption because I wanted  to test everything 
first, but have enabled 'update encrypted = Yes' so that this will 
update the smbpasswd file. I also have 'unix password sync = Yes'.

However, I cannot get smbpasswd to change the passwords, either by 
user or root. Any suggestions?
