Think you should try this below
# smbpasswd -a root

	Thanks but when I executed the command
	#smbpasswd root
	It says that it failed to find entry for user root.
	I checked my directory using slapcat and there is a user root
	dn: uid=root,ou=Users,dc=company,dc=com
	objectClass: top
	objectClass: inetOrgPerson
	objectClass: posixAccount
	objectClass: shadowAccount
	should I delete it and add it again?
