Hey there

I got a little problem with the remote changing of smb-passwords.
The problem:
I created a smbpasswd file with mksmbpasswd and so all the passwords are 
blank now. Because only root can log on to the server eyerybody has to 
change his/her password remote. Trying this gets me this error

Retype new SMB password:
machine rejected the (anonymous) password change: Error was 
: Wrong Password.
Failed to change password for ***

everybody trying to give me the "Don´t use the wrong password" answer, 
believe me, it is the right password, I changed it locally on the server.

I don´t know what to change next, so please help me.

The samba client is running on a SuSe Linux 8.1.

thx for the help
