What you could do:
Get TNG 2.5, compile it, and only use rpcclient:
You can run it against an NT PDC and change the password of
other users by logging in as Administrator.
It works mainly like this (untested)
rpcclient -S ntpdc -U Administrator%passwdofadmin
samuserset ntuser -p newpassword
Of course, you have to run this on a secure machine,
because otherwise your users can see the admin-pw in a
So, now how to get the new pw?
Check out the post
"ANNOUNCE: pam_pwexport, Unix->SMB password changes"
by Peter Samuelson <peter at cadcamlab.org>.
It's a pam-module, that can grab the new pw for you.
BTW: This should also even work against a TNG-PDC.
