I am getting very lost.
I have a bunch of existing linux users.
I want them to also be able to use the samba shares.. How do I easily
get there usernames/passwords for access via samba?
I have the following set;
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
unix password sync = Yes
At present I manually add each one with smbadduser,
But that prompts me for their password.
I haven't a clue what their passwords are and I do not want to start
telling them that I have set it.
Is there a way to;
1/. Add/Import existing users without changing the passwords (IE: keep
them sync'ed whether they change them in linux, or in samba)
2/. Add a user to the system so they are both linux and samba users in
one go ?
The docs are very vague here...
What are my options?
