In Linux Machine create a smb password for users (means if u have a user brainfast create smb password for him and if no user are there then add a user with useradd command)with smbpasswd command.
#smbpasswd -a brainfast <username>.
Activate the user with the below command.
#smbpasswd -e brainfast
Restart the smb service with
#service smb restart
And check on the Windows machine with the smb username and password.
