The mksmbpasswd.sh command only creates the skeleton for all your
users. The passwords cannot be determined from the entries in
/etc/password so those fields are set to all 'X'.
The man page for the smbpasswd file states in the section describing
the Lanman Password Hash
"If the hex string is equal to 32 'X' characters then the users
account is marked as disabled and the user will not be
able to log onto the Samba server."
You must set each users password using the smbpasswd program or using
the "update encrypted" setting in smb.conf. Check out the smb.conf
man page for an explaination of this parameter.
