Samba cannot add users

    I have a problem with my samba configuration, i'm not able to add users.

    When I try to select a systemuser and fill out the other fields I get the error "Error: Incorrect system user <user>"

    Where <user> is the username I filled in.

    When I use the commandline tool smbpasswd -a <user> it did work.

    System configuration:
    - Plesk 8.0.0
    - Freebsd 5.4
    - Samba version 3.0.21b

    Has anyone an idea how to fix this problem?

    In order to add a Samba user via the Plesk interface you have to associate your Samba user with a valid system (OS Level) user account.

    So to solve your problem you would either need to create a new user (useradd) within your OS and associate that account with the new Samba user, or associate your new Samba accounts with an existing user (eg. guest).
