I've just begun a new job and have inherited a Samba server that I'm VERY MUCH not familiar with. Using the instructions I was left, I am attempting to add a new student: login as: root [email protected]'s password: Last login: Tue Sep 6 08:57:37 2005 from 10.0.12.18 [[email protected] ~]# cd /opt/IDEALX/sbin [[email protected] sbin]# ./smbldap-useradd cbutts2011 [[email protected] sbin]# ./smbldap-passwd cbutts2011 Changing password for cbutts2011 New password : Retype new password : [[email protected] sbin]# smbpasswd cbutts2011 New SMB password: Retype new SMB password: Failed to find entry for user cbutts2011. Failed to modify password entry for user cbutts2011 After that, I go to a client (and I've tested it on several) but the student cannot log on. What could be the issue? Also, I rebooted the server last week...upon restart, I could not log back in using the root password the former employee left me. Is there a separate administrator password? Is there any way to reset that? As of right now I cannot gain access to the gui. I am planning on moving to a Win2003 domain, but I was hoping to wait until next summer. Thanks for all your help.
