    Try to re-create the "/etc/smbpasswd". Because you configure
"security = users" and "encrypt password = yes". It will check the
"/etc/smbpasswd" file rather than "/etc/passwd". So you need to create
this file manually because the default Samba RPM won't create this file.
(Because not everyone enable this option and the default is not enable
this option.)
    You'd better delete the "/etc/smbpasswd" file first and use
"smbadduser" to create new user in the file and use "smbpasswd" to
encrypt the password. Because different version of Samba will have a
little different format in the "/etc/smbpasswd". So I suggest you
re-create the file if you upgrade the samba from other version.
