    Samba Users

    Hi there,

    I have a SAMBA share on CentOS, which seems to be working fine.

    When I try to map a share from Windows 7, it keeps on prompting user login details.

    I ran the following command "sudo pdbedit -L -v" and it displayed four user accounts.

    How do I reset a password for these SAMBA users.
    I tried sambapasswd -a USER but it seems the command is invalid.

    I need to reset a password for one of the users.

    Please assist.

    The command you require is 'smbpasswd' I believe. I thought the '-a' option was to add a user, though, rather than just change their password?
