I think the recommended way is using the mkpasswd command. Actually the
recommended procedure is not to use anything.
Just run that command and take a look at the output. You have to filter
out most lines, only add the user you want.
Now run it with --help, you'll see you can list 'local' users AND domain
users. I put quotes on local because you can also specify local to
which computer (as long as it is running SMB, I think).
Its about the same for groups: mkgroup.
Hope this helps a little.
