 smbpasswd.8(8) -- change a user's SMB password
    This tool is part of the Samba suite. The smbpasswd program has several different functions, depending on whether it is run by the root user or not.

By default (when run with no arguments) it will attempt to change the current user's SMB password on the local machine. This is similar to the way the passwd(1) program works. smbpasswd differs from how the passw...
