I just created a new smbpasswd file, all users with unset passwords.
Problem is, users can't set their passwords, only I can as root.
Password is not set / blank, but they still get:
>Old SMB password: <enter>
>New SMB password: Samba
>Retype new SMB password: Samba
>machine 127.0.0.1 rejected the password change: Error was : RAP86: The
>specified password is invalid.
>Failed to change password for cas
entry for "cas" in smbpasswd is:
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
Works fine when changed as root, so everything else seems to be set ok....
PS... any way to make the smbpasswd file using everyones unix password
that's already set?
