[root at napalm private]# grep fliu /usr/local/samba/private/users.map
fliu = liuf
[root at napalm private]# grep users.map /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf
        username map = /usr/local/samba/private/users.map
[root at napalm private]# /usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd -a liuf
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
User liuf does not exist in system password file (usually /etc/passwd). Cannot
