Samba and local passwords
I'm trying to configure my Samba server to use the users and passwords that is found in /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow instead of using the default /etc/samba/smbpasswd.
I have googled for this with no luck. I have found posts that say that doing this is impossible but I know for a fact that it is because this was working a couple of days ago on the same server. And I found a person thats says that its working with its samba-3.0.5.
I am running samba-3.0.4-1.FC1 and I think I was using samba-2.0.7 before the upgrade
Yesterday the server head over 530 in uptime. I upgraded from RedHat 8.0 to Fedora Core 1 a couple of months ago but didnt restart. When the computer restarted yesterday no user could open their samba share on the server.
I would settle for a way to transfer /etc/shadow password hashes to the /etc/samba/smbpasswd file. I need a way so I dont have to edit all the passwords manually and ask every user to come over to my office so I could change their passwords.
