Nice Evening!

A friend of me has the following problem.  He is using (smbd Version
3.0.2a-Debian) I have in the bottom of this Mail his smb.conf.
Can someone help us?

# userdel -r fritz
# smbpasswd -x fritz
Failed to initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user fritz.
Failed to modify password entry for user fritz

# useradd fritz -m -G users
# passwd fritz
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password: 
passwd: password updated successfully

# smbpasswd -a fritz
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
tdb_update_sam: Failing to store a SAM_ACCOUNT for [fritz] without a primary
group RID
Failed to add entry for user fritz.

# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which 
# are not shown in this example
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) 
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentary and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command
# "testparm" to check that you have not many any basic syntactic 
# errors.
