I submitted this problem before but haven't received a response.  There
were promises made as to performance of the SAMBA server, and my team is
hard pressed to meet our deadlines.  I really need some help here guys (and
gals).  Please let me know ASAP as I am currently working on our 2
production servers now and can't wait!  THANKS in advance, ADAM PROPECK
          *************Previous Message*****************
I am running SAMBA 2.0.7 on a Solaris 2.7 Box, and want to continue to have
an NT4 PDC.  I am having difficulty with password sync from NT to the
Solaris side of things.  I would like to have users on Win98/NT
workstations be able to change their passwords on the NT side through
CTRL-ALT-DEL, Change Password, and then get SAMBA and our /etc/passwd to
sync to the new password.  How can I go about doing this?
