samba problems


I keep getting this error message when ever I try to run the command smbpasswd -a test
"Failed to initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user test.
Failed to modify password entry for user test"

I am running samba 2.2.9 on Fedora Core 2
My guess is maybe when I compiled samba i forgot something but I have no idea what. I have looked at a few tutorials and guides online but I still can't come up with anything

never mind I just fixed the problem I installed samba 3.0.4 and I played with the config file.

just happened by this post when i was searching for a fix for this problem. i dont know what happened to my samba install, but it borked on me and started spitting out this error.

to fix it, i had to remove samba from my system and completely reinstall. im pretty sure it had something to do with a corrupt smbpasswd entry. the first time i reinstalled, i got the same error. the second time, i backed up everything in /etc/samba and then deleted all the files in that dir, and reinstalled again. from that point, all was well again.
