smbpasswd syntax change from version 2.x to version 3.x
This stop pxesconfig from setting root password in image. This bug appeared on all platforms if they had samba 3.x installed.
See The following thread for full patch.
We worked around this by replacing our installed version of smbpasswd (from version 3.0.x) to a compiled smbpasswd from version 2.x. This works for us since we use winbind for authentication and don’t need the smbpasswd.
But we could easily have created a script for pxesconfig to change this on the fly.
