gravity ~# smbadm add-member -m sjorge staff sjorge: name lookup failed
This stumped me for a bit, after running
truss -f I figure out that it is reading /var/smb/smbpasswd.
After comparing it with a working system I noticed I didn't have any password hashes yet. I ran
pass sjorge to generate the hash. Error gone!
