setup upgraded to samba 2.2.12,
from 2.2.3 with win95 clients.

following winXP guide 

created a test account.

but smbpasswd fails..

[root at server data]# smbpasswd test
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
Failed to find entry for user test.
Failed to modify password entry for user test
[root at server data]#

the account exists in /etc/passwd

What now?


-- here's part of the config --

        smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
        add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d
/dev/null -g machines -c 'Machine
 Account' -s /bin/false -M %u
        pam password change = yes
        encrypt passwords = yes
        wins support = true
        max log size = 0
        obey pam restrictions = yes
        directory mode = 775
        security = user
