Got that passwd sync to work right. Had to set Samba server up at PDC.
Everything works fine now except that nobody who is guest user and has NULL
Password by default can change the nobody password. How do I prevent this?

here is /etc/smb.conf.nobody:

        workgroup = SHADOWWARRIOR
        server string = Samba %v on %L
        domain logons = yes

        wins support = yes
        name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast

        security = user

        os level = 34
        local master = yes
        preferred master = yes
        domain master = yes
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY

        time server = yes
        logon script = %U.bat

        keep alive = 30
        guest account = nobody
        kernel oplocks = false

        log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
        lock directory = /var/lock/samba
        hosts allow = 192.168.1.
        interfaces =
        load printers = yes

        encrypt passwords = yes
        smb passwd file = /etc/smbpasswd
        ;unix password sync = True
        ;passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        ;passwd chat = *new*password* %n\n *new*password* %n\n *changed*
        ;passwd chat debug = True
        ;update encrypted = yes

        browseable = no

        comment = The Domain SHADOWWARRIOR Logon Service
        path = /etc/samba/logon
        public = no
        writeable = no
        browseable = no
