mksmbpasswd - formats a /etc/passwd entry for a smbpasswd file
mksmbpasswd cat /etc/passwd | /usr/sbin/mksmbpasswd >
mksmbpasswd should be used only once, the first time Samba is
installed. The idea is to ease accounts creation by transferring all
user accounts from /etc/passwd to /etc/samba/smbpasswd.
Please note that passwords are not transferred automatically from
/etc/passwd to the new /etc/samba/smbpasswd file. After running
mksmbpasswd all accounts are disabled so the system administrator must
run smbpasswd for each account that needs to be enable.
