Weird Samba user glitch? -Cannot remove a user that definitely appears
I logged on today, and noticed that there were 2x "samba" users in the list, so I deleted one..

--------------- Unix username: samba NT username: Account Flags: [U ] User SID: S-1-5-21-1787190218-2025653600-1497103768-501 Primary Group SID: S-1-5-21-1787190218-2025653600-1497103768-513 Full Name: Home Directory: HomeDir Drive: (null) Logon Script: Profile Path: Domain: HOTSHOT-X11 Account desc: Workstations: Munged dial: Logon time: 0 Logoff time: never Kickoff time: never Password last set: 0 Password can change: 0 Password must change: 0 Last bad password : 0 Bad password count : 0 Logon hours : FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
