[K12OSN] Webmin Samba Problem

If I issue 
#smbpasswd -a test
Then enter in new passwords I get the errors 
Failed to initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user test
Failed to modify password entry for user test

But if I issue the same command for an existing user, I receive no
errors.  Now what?

Yes, if you log in as root and do 'smbpasswd -a user' where the user is
already in the unix password file, do you get an error message? Webmin
is probably running that for you. It shouldn't be possible to convert
the unix password to a samba password unless you still have the plain
text, though.
