Samba protocol uses own password. So you cannot use the same password, which you use for SSH, SFTP protocol and so on. To set Samba password you need to have an account on our systems. So please wait at least 60 minutes after you received confirmation email about your VO application/membership. To set Samba password you can use mini-application. You can login into the mini-application through eduID identity federation or using X.509 certificate.
You can set Samba password for service user account using mini application via Kerberos login and service user account password, which you're used to use for SSH, SFTP, … protocols to access your data storage. After successful login, you can set the Samba password.
