Hi Everyone,
This whole problem with the password command not working when winbind
is included as a method in the nsswitch.conf can probably be worked around
by simply using the -r files (or -r nis or -r nisplus) switch.  Take a look
at the man page for passwd on HP-UX 11.x  and see if this won't help you
Hope this helps,
