Hi mates,

How can I delete a user from samba (smbpasswd) if the user her/himself is
no longer in unix?

# smbpasswd -x abcdefgh
Failed to initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user abcdefgh.
Does this user exist in the UNIX password database ?
Failed to modify password entry for user abcdefgh

Any idea?

take care!
