cupsaddsmb” Keeps Asking for Root Password in Never-ending Loop

Have you set security = user? Have you used smbpasswd to give root a Samba account? You can do two things: open another terminal and execute smbpasswd -a root to create the account and continue entering the password into the first terminal. Or, break out of the loop by pressing Enter twice (without trying to type a password).

If the error is “Tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME”, you may have forgotten to create the /etc/samba/drivers directory.
