This is a machine account I am trying to create. 'oracle' is a windows
XP Pro box on my network. I issue the following command to get this error.
I get to this point in the guide.
smbpasswd -a -m oracle
smbpasswd -a -m oracle$ # either command errors
I would really like to get this going especially for roaming profiles.
Any help would be appreciated.
