In the smbpasswd file, does the uid, uid number and password have to match
the Linux equivalint?
The reason I ask, is that I am hoping that I can have a different password
for Samba and Linux, because I don't wish to give out my root password for
I once tried to setup a admin account with the same uid number as root but
with a different password and remember getting it to work, but I think that
I had to setup the user name map.
Does this pose a security risk? I am sure it does, but only from a smb
point of view, not my Linux box or am I smoking a M$ manual?
