Hello All,

How is the value for sambaPasswordHistory gotten.  The description for the
attribute says, "Concatenated MD4 hashes of the unicode passwords used on this
account".... However, I thought MD4 hashes were 32 characters long and
sambaPasswordHistory is 64 characters for each password.  Also, I thought the
sambaNTPassword attribute was an MD4 hash, but the hashes in
sambaPasswordHistory are never the same as those that were in
sambaNTPassword... What's the deal?
