To be honest I have *never* heard about a command smbuser for SAMBA. However, I have to admit that I am using SAMBA since V2 so
it can be that in prior versions there was such command.
Users in samba are added with smbpasswd -a user_name
Be aware that the user you add (in the above example user_name) has to have a *valid* Linux (UNIX) account,
*prior* adding to SAMBA !!!!
Also, usually the users are added to the smbpasswd (called just the same like the command) file and not
In my distro (SuSE) the smbpasswd command is located in /usr/bin
and the file containing the account informations in /etc/samba/.
I do not know what your smbuser file contains, but it's *definitly* not a valid format for smbpasswd, since
there isn't any field that looks like a password.
Tak a look on your smbpasswd file and there you can find the valid users.
You can get more information about the smbpasswd in the man pages: man smbpasswd
