 Any one got the passwords to sync under Solaris ?. The smbpasswd file
changes fine, but siliently the unix password change doesnt happen.

unix password sync = yes
unix realname = yes
passwd program = /bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *new*password* %n\n

 The Solaris passwd program should ask for the old password when called
with a user name as root, so as far as I can see I have the chat correct,
but the lack of any error logged from samba at all is most disconcerting.
