    Samba - Unable to create Samba Users, - help!

    I have a fresh install of Red Hat 9.0. I upgraded to Samba 3.02 and Webmin 1.14

    I set up shares with the user "nobody" as guest, and I am able to browse the network from windows machines. Everything seems to work great, except:

    I set up Samba/Unix user syncronization and tried to add a new user, or convert existing users. It is able to create the Unix user, but says it failed in other modules (webmin/samba). Below are the error messages:

    When creating a new user:
    "Failed to save user : The user was successfully saved, but an error occured in another module : samba::useradmin_create_user failed :

    could not create account to add new user -s

    at ../ line 749."

    When converting existing users:
    "Failed to convert user :

    could not create account to add new user -s"

    What does the '-s' mean?

    Ok, the problem was Webmin. I un-installed version 1.14 and installed the previous version (1.13) and it works now!
