Sorry, I was gone for a while.
I did not specify anything as a backend, so I assume it is using
smbpasswd for a backend. I have just read the manpage for
pdbedit and a command like:
pdbedit -a -u testuser
Results in: could not create account to add new user testuser
This was done as root.
Any other commands to modify i.e the home with the -h flag did not change
What am I missing.
Thanks for your help.
