mksmbpasswd.sh will parse your /etc/passwd or /etc/shadow file and create
the relevent users. I'm not too sure about the initial passwords.
But you can get samba to sync/passwd to sync with each other

Subject: [Samba] password question
I have installed Samba 2.2.8 on a Solaris 8 server and have a question about
samba passwords. I know you can assign an NT server to authenticate
passwords, and you can also use samba to create a smbpasswd list. My
question, is can you use the existing UNIX /etc/passwd or /etc/shadow file
so that we don't have to manage another list?
Thanks in advance!
