Hi !

Try using: "smbpasswd" (being logged in as root) and enter the newly changed
When changing the password with "passwd", then smb-Password isn't
automatically changed.

Kind regards

Betreff: [Samba] user root is not accepted anymore


we're using samba 2.2.1.a on a SuSE Linux box.
After changing the root password, root is not able to login anymore.
Neither with the new nor the old password.
We reinstalled samba and changed every file in /etc/samba.
Every other user is accepted.
We never used smbpasswd.

Now we're a little bit confused because we changed the root's password on a
identical machine and do not have the same effect.
Is there anybody who has got an idea?

Regards, Rudi
