samba password
« on: October 02, 2013, 12:15:16 pm »
samba password expired? last night I did an apt-get upgrade and I think there was also along the lines of smb included.
Anyways this morning I was not able to access my fileshares on the server. I had to go to the webadmin and change the password for my user. So I'm guessing the password for smb actually expired- is this by design?
