[CentOS] Problem with Samba on CentOS 5.3

Fri Nov 20 16:45:35 UTC 2009

Hi there --

I am having an issue with the Samba package, release 3.033375, that came bundled
with the 
CentOS 5.3 distribution. It seems that even though I created the smbpasswd file,
located at
the /etc/samba directory, I am unable to modify the password of the users listed
in it.

I can run the /usr/bin/smbpasswd -a <username> command as root, and even though
are no errors, a subsequent check of the smbpasswd file indicates the username
in question
is still listed with the series of X's and NO PASSWORD indicator. 

I have confirmed through the find command the only instances of smbpasswd are
those at the 
/etc/samba and /usr/bin locations.  

Has anyone seen this issue, and aside from installing samba from source, have a
solution to
this problem? Thanks.
