> Hello,
I set up samba and added my user name w/ smbpasswd and there was no problems. I 
can connect to my samba share from MacOSX and Windows. However, I created a new 
user with useradd and when I try to set his smb password I get the following 
> errors:
> smbpasswd NewUser
> New SMB password:
> Retype new SMB password:
> Failed to find entry for user NewUser.
> Failed to modify password entry for user NewUser
> What's going on here? How can I fix this?
> Please help.
