I have samba 3.0.0.
I want to keep password in sync with unix passwords (shadow)
I have following config in pam for "passwd":

auth       required     /lib/security/ service=system-auth
account    required     /lib/security/ service=system-auth
password   requisite retry=3
password   requisite shadow md5 use_authtok try_first_pass
password   required try_first_pass nullok use_authtok

However I get:
[root at venus olaf]# passwd olaf
Changing password for user olaf.
New UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
No password supplied
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
[root at venus olaf]#

and in /var/log/messages:
Oct 27 17:18:20 venus PAM_smbpass[7954]: new password not acceptable
