Iam new to Samba and have installed/compiled 2.2.8a on
my AIX 5.1 system. I cans ee the shares fine.
However when I go to the PC and double click on the
share it asks me for a passwd. This is what I want OK
so far.

When I enter in my unix ID and unix passwd it does not
accept it. I keep getting invalid id or passwd

I have made the samba password file from the unix per
the instruction : cat /etc/passwd |mkpasswd
I also had one in /usr/local/bin/smbpasswd
I think this was from the old install. 

When I use the smbpasswd command it does not respond
as expected. (From what man pages says thatis) It
tries to run the smbpasswd file. Is this what should



There are two major products to come out of Berkeley: LSD and
UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
