Been there, done that about a zillion times, and I never seemed to get the
right settings. For program, we're using the standard Linux passwd, and
for chat (hmm, trying to remember as I don't have the box here to look at)
something _similiar_ to the default, but not exactly. I tried to match it
up to what the passwd program does for any normal user, but no matter what
happens the command always fails. Perhaps I'll bump up the debug output
and see if anything significant is in the log files.
What I'd like to know is if anyone has gotten this to run on a Linux
machine (RedHat 4.1, kernel 2.0.27, and Samba 1.9.17p2) If so, what
configuration did you use? Is using passwd the problem?
Thanks for any help you may have...
