RE: [Samba] Domain Root Password

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?
