[Samba] Samba 3.5!

Hi Paulo,

Since Samba 3.3, the default passdb backend is *tdbsam*.
Which means users are stored in */var/lib/samba/passdb.tdb*.

This doesn't change the behavior of the command *smbpasswd*.
It still helps you manage users but they are just stored in another

If you want to stick to *smbpasswd* backend, just add the following
directive in *smb.conf*.
passdb backend = smbpasswd:/etc/samba/smbpasswd

Hope this helps
