Hi, thank you for answer, in the new server tells (8.04),

root at server:~# which -a smbpasswd

root at server:~# ls -l /usr/bin/smbpasswd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1307112 2007-02-05 22:14 /usr/bin/smbpasswd

In the ubuntu 5.10 (original server),

root at sever:~# which -a smbpasswd

root at sever:~# ls -l /usr/bin/smbpasswd
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 1307112 2007-02-05 22:15 /usr/bin/smbpasswd

Hallo, Gabriel,

Du meintest am 04.02.10:

What tells

        which -a smbpasswd
        ls -l /usr/bin/smbpasswd

> I try to change the password with passwd but then it doesn?t allow me

That's simple: "passwd" changes (only) the Linux password, and  
"smbpasswd" only changes the Samba password.

Viele Gruesse!
