Let's get back to serious work then. :)

I'm not into Solaris, but it should be similar to Debian Linux in this case
(I hope) :)

Let's see what you have here.

Hm, I think it is connected with the %u (username). I'm not shure whether
this is the SMB or the Unix username. Might any of you guys who work with
this on a regular basis reply?
passwd chat debug will only help you for the "passwd chat" option and a log
level of 100.

Ever tried this, by the way?
Have a look at the online version of the Using Samba book. it's explained in
chapter 6.4. Check this and then please write again.

Hope I could help
