There is a bug in Swat package samba-swat-3.0.2a-3mdk
The password functions are not working: add user, change password, enable
If you add or enable a user, the user will be disabled.
You can check this by opening /etc/samba/smbpasswd file.
Entry will look like:
[DU         ]:LCT-00000000:

The 32 X indicates that user has been disabled.

You can work around this problem by using SMB utility smbpasswd from the
command line.
For example as root:
smbpasswd -a johnz
