Re: [Samba] Windows cant access shared directories after changed password with smbpasswd




Hi Rowland ,

No, we didn't .
We only change in the Samba Server.

The login used on Windows and used on Samba are different and should not
have relation (technically speaking).
Eg.:
I'm logged in with user "dbadmin" at windows and when I access the Samba
server , on the first access I informed "cinacio" and the password which
works fine. When I change the password of "cinacio" in samba server, the
windows machine stops access and return to ask the user/password. I inform
the user "cinacio" and the new password, but the samba does not authorize
and into its log show as BAD PASSWORD...
I'm know the password is OK into the Samba, because if I test using
"smbclient" it work.
