Description Richard Steck 2007-04-16 13:26:34 UTC
Description of problem: I add a new Samba user in Preferences > Add User. Then I OK the user. The user works. When I return to Prefs > Add User, the user is not visible. If I try to add the user again, it says the user already exists--yet the user is not visible. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Samba Config Tool 1.2.39. Kernel 2.6.20-1.3069.fc7 How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1.Add user to Samba Users with Samba Config Tool, Prefs > Add User. Exit tool. 2. 3. Actual results: Return to Samba Config Tool Prefs > Add User. No users shown, yet User exists. Expected results: List of Users should show. Additional info: This is an old bug that was reported in #159419. It seems to have popped up again.

New bugs shouldn't be filed against "testN", only against "devel".

The problem was a different one than in bug #159419, though. Up to now, system-config-samba read /etc/samba/smbpasswd directly instead of using the pdbedit tool and when the default changed from using the smbpasswd file to using a tdb backend, it couldn't cope with that, i.e. users where added to the passdb TDB file, but system-config-samba still looked for /etc/samba/smbpasswd. system-config-samba-1.2.40 is building right now which contains fixes for this bug. Please test extensively as the new code is sufficiently different that I might have broken something ;-). If the fix doesn't help you, please reopen this ticket, if it introduces other bugs, please open new bugzilla tickets. Thanks.
