I'm having problems getting samba functioning in FC-8. On my old RH-9 installation, the smbpasswd file was in /etc/samba. There's a smbpasswd file in /etc/samba in FC-8 but when I try to add a user:
$ smbpasswd -a username
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
It goes as if the user is added, but smbpasswd remains empty and the file smbusers doesn't have username added.
$ smbclient //yourhostname/aservice # (from samba HOWTO with appropriate substitutions)
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
Why does the /etc/samba/smbpasswd file remain empty after supposedly adding a user? Is the actual password file somewhere else?
The samba HOWTO doesn't seem to have any information on what that error means or what to do to correct it.
