samba file

I am using Samba 3.0.33. The file is not referred anywhere is Smb.conf. Infact, I couldn't see the file any where in samba. But everything seems to be working. Is there an alternative way to refer to the users list.

in smb.conf you should have a line :
username map = /etc/

But maybe what you have in smb.conf suffice...(I mean the stanza after the "exported" directory after path= with username, valid users...)

but "path" in my config file doesn't specify anything about users. It just give a a directory path. Does Samba get the user details from file system?

Also, What does the "password servers" do?
