Server Password management solution
Authored by: bmeteor on Mar 16, '02 02:01:13AM
sudo smbpasswd -a username

This will add a user so Windows can log in. Enter your username in place of username.

For further reference, It's on the Xamba site at http://xamba.sourceforge.net/sambax/index.shtml at the bottom of the page.

Call me dense, but it took me forever to find this little detail, so I'm just trying to help out. :-)

That didn't work for me. However, adding "local master = yes" in /etc/smbd.conf did. ... just my three cents.
