Hello -

Im having a problem w/ my users being able to change their SMB password. 
What is the best approach to allow users acces to smbpasswd to change 
their own passwords when they want?

Right now Im getting the following error:

machine rejected the (anonymous) password change: Error was : 
Wrong Password.
Failed to change password for donald

Here is my global from the smb.conf

       netbios name = WOOT
       socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 
       server string = SMB v3.0.14a
       local master = yes
       preferred master = yes
       domain logons = no
       domain master = no
       workgroup = Puddin
       interfaces =
       bind interfaces only = no
       log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
       log level = 2
       max log size = 50
       lock directory = /var/lock/samba
       printcap name = /etc/printcap
       wins support = no
       wins server =
       os level = 62
       remote announce =
       deadtime = 15
