Hello - hope somebody can point me in the right direction here. We use a SCO 
5.0.4 box and samba 2.02, and when I try to get the passwd sync feature 
working, this is what my log file says:- (the user name is tnichols)-

[1999/07/09 12:32:17, 3] smbd/chgpasswd.c:chgpasswd(387)
  Password change for user: tnichols
[1999/07/09 12:32:17, 10] smbd/chgpasswd.c:findpty(78)
  findpty: Allocated slave pty /dev/pts000

  talktochild: chatbuf=[*1):*] responsebuf=[Setting password for user: 

  Password request denied.

[1999/07/09 12:32:18, 3] smbd/chgpasswd.c:chat_with_program(344)
  The status of the process exiting was 256

... I am uncertain what to make of "your identity is not known.", I thought 
passwd was involked by root.

Any ideas, anybody? Please?
