I am trying to configure users to be able to connect to a SMB share. Here is
Operating System: HP-UX 10.20
Samba Location: /usr/local/samba
Location of smbpasswd: /etc/smbpasswd
Location of smbusers: /etc/smbusers
The workstation is part of an NIS domain.
Password encryption: yes
Whenever I try to connect to the samba share from a Windows NT or 2000
machine, I am prompted
for a username and password. Unfortunately, no matter what combination of
username and password
I enter, I am NOT able to connect to the samba share.
Also, if I log onto the UNIX system via an NIS account and try to change my
smbpasswd via the
smbpasswd command, I get the following error message:
MACHINE 127.0.0.1 REJECTED THE PASSWORD CHANGE: ERROR WAS: RAP86: THE
PASSWORD IS INVALID. FAILED TO CHANGE PASSWORD FOR USER.
I could use some help. Thanks.
