Thanks for the reply !
I can try those commands on Monday -- long Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
I do not have admin on the Sun box, but my tech lead does.
The link says to turn off password encryption. I cannot do that.
The network people (government run network) will not allow that.
The samba machine is set for encrypted passwords.
