 Mitch answers :  Nope. Can't be.

Here is a snippet from MY /etc/samba/smbpasswd file.
joecool:509:Ahash was here6CAAD3B435B51404EE:Ahash washereCA26B3EFF7B366AD78:[U          ]:LCT-3CB6E029:

(Ignore password hash area... NOTE THE [U ] for this entry

Later on.
:[UX         ]:LCT-3CC466E3:

NOTICE the nice UX here...

on both I did a smbpasswd user password  and then a 
smbpasswd -e user  to enable user.

SO WHY the UX?
and why cant I  still get on server as ANYONE?

(remember I did try the smbclient with both ID's to verify password was correct.

Thanks again
