I am using Samba on Solaris 8. It is Samba version
3.0.10. I am trying to add a user as root using
smbpasswd -a name. I am receiving this error message
after typing in the passwords:
"NULL guest account!?!?
Failed to initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user name. Does
this user exist in the UNIX password database?
Failed to modify password entry for user name"
Yes the user is in the UNIX password database. I have
looked at the configurations and do not see anything
wrong. I do have a Samba version 2.2.8 running on
another machine and working just fine. I tried to
match the conf between the two.
Do you Yahoo!?
