Debian 7 (Wheezy) – no smbpasswd command


If you have installed samba/cifs-utils/etc. and are trying to set your users up on a Debian 7 system, you might be surprised to find that the smbpasswd command seems to be missing. It’s actually part of the samba-common-bin package, which you can install via:


sudo apt-get install samba-common-bin


…and you should have your command.
