Samba smbpasswd and pdbedit -L showing different results
 
Hi all -
I have a Netgear ReadyNAS Home Server and am having an issue with the samba config. I've posted to the forum there but not getting much luck. I added a user through the provided ui but a user I created is not able to login via cifs from a windows box. When I view /etc/samba/smbpasswd I see the user I am trying ot login as and there is only a [U ] between the brackets which I have gathered is good. However when I issue
Code:

pdbedit -L
I don't see the user. From what I understand these are both views into samba users. How could these get out of sync and what is the suggested way to get them back in sync?

Thanks LQ!

The samba user password can be different from linux regular user. You have to create samba password separately. The command is "smbpasswd -a <username>".

That worked. Thanks.
