Samba Security Account Manager
« on: March 31, 2004, 09:30:09 AM »
I'm having trouble getting the SAM accounts created.  When I enter ./password -a steve I get two error messages :

Failed to initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user steve.
Failed to modify password entry for user steve

Can anyone help me with this?  I have been trying to find an answer for days, even if I knew what files this command was trying to modify I might be able to edit it manually or even know whether or not the file is there.

Are you running that as root? I'm doubting you could make the changes yourself; it likely encrypts password somehow. I have some experience with Samba (just set up PDC), but never heard of SAM; please birefly explain or provide link. Good luck!

I never heard of it either but I managed to get everything working.  If you go to Mozilla and enter"http://localhost:10000" that will take you to where every service can be configured.  This may only be a function of Mandrake as I can't do that in Red Hat. 8)

That is webmin . . . great for setting up almost everything you want to do in linux. Go to. . .

http://www.webmin.com/
and get the version for Redhat, install as root, tehn you can go to localhost:10000 on that machine or http://ip_of_Redhatmachine:10000 and do it from any computer on the network . . . have fun!
