Hi,

I'm getting the following error when I run "mkpasswd -l -d > /etc/passwd":

mkpasswd: [31] A device attached to the system is not functioning.

Where do I look for a explanation or a fix or a workaround to the problem?

We just went through some big changes here at work, the details of
which I know little.  All I've heard is that we are using Samba
instead of Windows now.

Thanks,
