Question samba password


echo lwindia | passwd username --stdin &> /dev/null
this is running


but

echo lwindia | smbpasswd -a username --stdin &> /dev/null
is not running i.e. not creating user (username)
smbpasswd -a username --makes account as well as assign password to it.

could anyone give some tips or hint or solution of this problem

i will be very thankful to you
