Got this error : 
root at okeefe% smbclient //okeefe/swmooi
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
session setup failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair in a 
Tree Connect or Session Setup are invalid.)

I read the Diagnosis, and seems like the cause 
is this because my systems use the /etc/shadow file
for password.

But I searched through and couldn't find information on how
to compile the shadow passwords in support for them in smbd.
Can someone please help ?
( Now that I know/suspect the cause, I wish there could be
  a link/write-up on "how to fix it" right beneath "the cause")
