TDB Error When Adding New SMB User using Smbpasswd


When I add a new samba user using the smbpasswd command (smbpasswd -a sample_username), I get the following error:

Unable to modify TDB passwd ! Error: Record exists
occurred while storing the RID index (RID_ )
Failed to add entry for user sample_username.
Failed to modify password entry for user sample_username.

Does anyone know of any solutions to this error?

I have rebooted several times and also searched on Google, but the only proposed solution has been to reinstall the server. Is there any way to repair just the tdb file, or just samba?

Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
