[CentOS] Problem with Samba on CentOS 5.3

Fri Nov 20 16:59:57 UTC 2009

Hi there -- 

Thanks for your reply. The output from the testparm command is shown below:

Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"
Processing section "[printers]"
Processing section "[roinventory]"
Loaded services file OK.
        passdb backend = tdbsam 

Evidently this version of samba is not using smbpasswd backend. If that is the 
case what would be the correct command syntax to use here?

Is that version still using the old smbpasswd backend? Please put config 
file on mailinglist or to pastebin.com
