I've the following in the logs and am wondering why they are there.
I also keep getting emails from SAMBA log-deamon (or something like that).
[2003/05/19 15:24:29, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:getsmbfilepwent(364)
getsmbfilepwent: malformed password entry (uid not number)
It's not really serious (at least to me) but it's a cause for concern. Below
are the details
LInux Redhat 8.0
Samba 2.2.7-5.8.0 - Security Rollup fix
I've got smbpasswd and passwd database sync'ed together using PAM. Since
Redhat's shipping samba is 'flawed' and not pam e-nabled, I recompiled it
using source and Redhat's errata. (i'm pretty sure I did it correctly)
Any help is appreciated.
