We use a NT4.0 PDC and want use Samba PDC. You have to turn on password
encryption and unix password sync. But how to sync NT password and smbpasswd
first time?

1. Idee: Give everybody a new password in smbpasswd and let it change by the
2. Idee: Move NT password from regestrie to smbpasswd. But I don't know how
to do. Can anybody help?
