[Samba] Add User question

Hi all,


When I tried to add user "as root"

# smbpasswd -a AAA
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
unable to open passdb database.
Added user AAA

AAA is an existing user of RH8.0 with password to login.  What is the
problem of "unable to open passdb database"

# which passdb
/usr/bin/which: no passdb in

# locate passdb
[root at localhost root]#

How to correct it.

Thanks in advance.
