Angry smbpasswd is pissing me off. Need help


Arg. In smb.cfg, I have my encrypted passwords file at /opt/samba/lib/smbpasswds. I go to /opt/samba/bin/smbpasswd, type in "Jimmy" as the user, give it a new password twice, and attempt to make an encrypted samba user. But it says the passdb database cannot be found, so it fails to edit my smbpasswds file. Therefore nobody can login to my Samba share. I need help on this! My friend needs his data back!!

smbpasswd

Have you added the user yet? When you first create a user password with smbuser, you need to use the -a option like so:

smbpasswd -a Jimmy

Then, enter the password twice, etc. like you have described and it should work.
