Dear all,
   Im now testing SAMBA under LDAP . I have a LDAP account anthony. I do not know how to use smbpasswd to change this LDAP account. 
./smbpasswd -a anthony -s 12345678
I have the following mesasge  : 
User anthony does not exist in system password file (usually /etc/passwd). Cannot add account without a valid local system user.Failed to modify password entry for user anthony
Would anyone let me know how to refer my account in LDAP not in /etc/passwd ?
