SamrUnicodeChangePasswordUser3 (presumably) is the extension of
SamrUnicodeChangePasswordUser2 documented here:


Is operates the same but returns a password change failure reason. 

However in MS-SAMR it is listed as:

 Opnum63NotUsedOnWire Reserved for local use. Opnum: 63

I noticed this because I'm writing a document covering Samba's design
and use of crypto and will mark MS-SAMR a reference.  

For the curious the work in progress for this page is here:

the main document is here:


Finally, is there any 'overview of all crypto use in AD' document I'm
unaware of?
