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 
anything either.

What am I missing.

Thanks for your help.
