Sounds like samba is looking at a different file. Do a search for
smbpasswd and see what you come up with. Cheers.

Subject: [Samba] problems with smbpasswd
I am having problems with smbpasswd. I am getting the following error:
# smbpasswd -a dfrey
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
Failed to modify entry for user dfrey.
Failed to modify password entry for user dfrey
dfrey is a valid system user
I have searched google, but I haven't found an answer yet. The
/etc/samba/smbpasswd file is empty. I created the file myself with
touch. Running the command with no file there makes no difference.
What can I try?
