Tag: System Passwords with Samba

smbpasswd changes samba password and unix password too

Problem: At newer Linux Setups with Samba 3 by default smbpasswd changes the user unix login password and samba share password. For higher security i prefer different passwords like on debian SARGE Solution: edit as root /etc/samba/smb.conf enter unix password sync = no (Yes=default) restart samba /etc/init.d/samba restart set new different passwords for a user with passwd and smbpasswd check passwords..working
