1 Its so seldom that I have to work on samba config I forget between
2 times whatever steps are needed.
4 This time I just copied an old config over to a new[ish] gentoo
5 install.
7 Now attempting to set smbpasswds. First I tried to give a windows
8 client user name (but no such user on gentoo OS). Failed with message
9 user not found ....
11 Ok.. I think I recall somekind of mapping to do for aliasing windows
12 user to a user on gentoo server.
14 So next tried an actual Gentoo user name:
16 smbpasswd reader
17 root # smbpasswd reader
18 New SMB password:
19 Retype new SMB password:
20 Failed to find entry for user reader.
21 Failed to modify password entry for user reader
23 Where is smbpasswd looking for an entry for reader?
