SAMBA - smbpasswd not working !!
 
Hello!

I've just installed Fedora 1 and would like to configure SAMBA server.
Everything gone just fine ... there are no testparm command errors.

But I can't login from my windows machine ... The problem is that I can't add user or even change the password by the smbpasswd command.
System gave me this error message:

Code:

ldap_connect_system: Falied to retrive password from secrets.tdb  Connection to LDAP server failed for the 1 try!  smb_ldap_search_suffix: Problem during the LDAP search: (unknown) (Invadil credentials)
What is the problem? Anyone can help me :) ?

I have found the solution by myself ...

The problem was in the configuration file:

"passdb backend = smbpasswd"

I had ldap in the place of smbpasswd ;-) The LDAP server is not standing on my system, that's why was this problem ...
