smbpasswd errors prevent changing passwords
This is really hot.
I manage a lab of 25 dual boot computers in the school where I teach, running fedora and (cough) win2k. Last year all went very well for the Windows users in my lab, but this year every time the users attempt to change their samba passwords using smbpasswd they get this error message:
---- console dialog for a user trying to change their samba password will logged on to the server -----
[aford@stretch aford]$ smbpasswd
Old SMB password:
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
machine 127.0.0.1 rejected the session setup. Error was :
Failed to change password for aford
----- end of dialog ---------
Any help would be greatly appreciated, since the other teacher using the lab is unable to teach... OUCH!
