Emne: [Samba] Adding users


I've isntalled samba, and I have problems (I have read the docs,

I can't add samba users. The smbadduser program outputs the following:

root at chacha:~ > smbadduser okovacs:okovacs
No such map passwd.byname. Reason: Request arguments bad
ERROR: okovacs Not in passwd database SKIPPING...

user okovacs is listed in the /etc/passwd. I have a SuSE 7.2 system,
however I
have installed samba from SuSE 7.3 rpm.

What do I do wrong?
