Samba as a DC Using webmin

Postby danial ┬╗Wed May 07, 2008 10:01 am


It is my first time to be here with you, and I'm very happy for that.

Actually, I have installed webmin in my centos 5. Now I have installed the samba module as well.

But. I have a big problem in configuring the samba server.

I searched the Internet, and found the following great Doc.

[url = http: //www.webmin.com/samba-howto.html] Howto [/ url]

Actually, It is easy until the step number (22).

I can't reset the password for the samba user, which is already a Linux user.

Every time I try. It gives me the following error,

Failed to find entry for user dan.
Failed to modify password entry for user dan

I don't know the reason, as well as I don't know how can I add a new samba user, which is "NOT" a linux user.

Thanks in advance for any help. It would be very appreciated.
