NAME

mksmbpasswd - formats a /etc/passwd entry for a smbpasswd file  

SYNOPSIS

mksmbpasswd cat /etc/passwd | /usr/sbin/mksmbpasswd > /etc/samba/smbpasswd  

DESCRIPTION

mksmbpasswd should be used only once, the first time Samba is installed. The idea is to ease accounts creation by transferring all user accounts from /etc/passwd to /etc/samba/smbpasswd.

Please note that passwords are not transferred automatically from /etc/passwd to the new /etc/samba/smbpasswd file. After running mksmbpasswd all accounts are disabled so the system administrator must run smbpasswd for each account that needs to be enable.  

FILES

/etc/passwd
System wide accounts file
/etc/samba/smbpasswd
Encrypted passwords file for the Samba daemons
