I am trying to run Samba 2.2.8a in an embedded linux system and
running into problems with smbpasswd. With both smbd and nmbd
processes running fine ( the log files at log level 3 don't show
when I try to add a user to the smbpasswd file I get the following
# smbpasswd -a pbathini
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB passwd:
User pbathini does not exist in system passwd file ( usually
Cannot add accounet without a valid local system user.
Failed to modify password entry for user pbathini
My /etc/passwd file looks like this.
Why is smbpasswd unable to find user entry in /etc/passwd file?
Can somebody please help?
