I am trying to get samba to use its local users and passwords file and
not the UNIX /etc/password file.  Is this possible?  I would like to be
able to have users on the samba shares but not in the /etc/password
file.  If I am trying to do the impossible please let me know...  Thanks
in advance for any help.

Failed to initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user vcshare. Does this user exist
in the UNIX password database ?
