The package synchronizes passwords between windows and LDAP.
It's free and open source.
> I have searched and searched but haven't found any responses on the the

> I am using Samba 2.2.8. I use Kerberos 5 with ldap for the system
> accounts. I am just learning about kerberos and ldap, so I am by no means
> any expert. I plan on trying to use the Samba with ldap HOWTO later on but
> I wanted to get the initial services working first.
> I have configured PAM so that when passwd is run, it successfully changes
> the kerberos password and the samba password at the same time. I noticed
> that it really doesn't care what the samba password is set to, it just
> overwrites anything that is already in the smbpasswd file.
> I also have successfully configured Samba to change the samba password from
> the windows client (using the change password feature in
> Ctrl-Alt-Del). The only way I could get the password change from the
> client to work was to set "unix password sync = no" but I would like the
> functionality of this, so that when a user changes their samba password
> from the client, it changes both of the passwords.
> Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?
