I fixed it already I'm thinking samba or it could be Linux(more thinking 
samba) does not like passwords with certain symbols.  I redid the 
passwords to only numbers and letters though I like symbols but that is 
a limitation I did not know I would face.  I CentOS 6 samba take 
passwords symbols correctly it could be a bug who knows.
