When I used smbpasswd it gives me the following error...
root at hayek:~# smbpasswd john
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
Failed to find entry for user john.

This is despite the existence of the user
root at hayek:~# cat /etc/samba/smbpasswd
# SMB password file.
]:LCT-00000000:John Tate,,,

I do not understand what is going on. I really need to get this working.
