I'm seeing the same thing. I configured samba to update the Unix/Linux
account but it isn't working. I don't have a lot of users at the moment
so changing Linux and samba passwords isn't a big issue. However, I
would like to know why this isn't working.
I can't offer any logs etc... I haven't had time to dig into the problem.
Oh, here's what I'm using
1. Ubuntu Dapper
2. Samba from apt-get
3. workgroup ( no domain )
4. Using SWAT and Webmin to configure samba
5. It works! ( users connect and access files )
