    • Password Change GUI error, SMB password not changed

      Hello friends, on my fresh OpenMediaVault install, when a user logs in and changes their password, an error is received and the user's login password is changed, but their samba password stays the old one. I'm writing this post in the hopes that I have only done something wrong and it is not a bug.

      What happens:

      1. log into GUI as regular user
      2. attempt to change password
      3. receive popup error

      Source Code

      1. Missing argument 2 for OMVSMBModule::modifyUser()

      4. Subsequently, login password is changed but SMB password is not.

      Back information:
      Samba is enabled and works, user home directories are set up and work.
      Admin user can change other user passwords no problem.
      User in question is in groups "users,sambashare"
      Browser is Chrome version 22.0.1229.94 on Linux

      Processor: Intel Xeon E5205 @ 1.86Ghz
      Kernel: 2.6.32-5-AMD64
      RAM: 2Gigs

      I tried Googling for an answer, searching the forums, and searching the bugtracker. I didn't see any bugs that seemed to be exactly or related to what I am seeing. Am I doing something wrong or should I open a bug ticket?

      Thanks.

      It's a bug.
      Absolutely no support through PM!

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.

      You can always do as root:

      smbpasswd aldoszx

      or just smbpasswd as user from the command line.

      I know that.
      I am talking about changing the user passwords by themselves, and i a comfortable manner (not via cli).


      Sorry, I didn't realize the user had to change the password. I was just suggesting an alternative until the gui is fixed.
