Theoretically yes, but there are still some areas where smbpasswd
is essential. For example, to create trusting domain account on
samba you have no choice but this utility. There is 'net' functionality
that allows to do it, but only against NT servers, as Samba doesn't
yet support required rpc call. Mainly because I have no time to
implement it now, because I want to complete interdomain trust auth
code and namecache on top of gencache.
I wish the day was 48 hours long ... :)
