Good Morning jari
Please, help - me. I see your answer about "cahnge password with win98"
and I trying, but don´t work.
I have samba 2.07 instaled in solaris 2.6+NIS.
Every time, I have to create user in windows2000, in solaris (NIS) and
samba. It needs to type the password this user
06 times.
Do you know how create/change password an user in windows and
automaticly create/change password in solaris and samba (that command is
passwd to unix and smbpasswd samba)? 
I search this answer since 11 month.

To enable the changing of passwords from a Windows
client, you must enable and setup the following
parameters (the options given to each parameter are
the settings I use on my RH 6.1 system; YMMV):

passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n
*Retype*new*UNIX*password* %n\n *success*

The passwd chat option should all be on one line
(WebMail mangles it). HTH.
