I'm getting a password error when i do CTRL/ALT and DELETE on my PC, select
Change Password and enter my network id, the samba domain and the old/new
passwords. The error is "Unable to change the password on this account
(c00000BE). Please consult your system administrator.". I was able to change
my samba password a short while ago but for some reason i'm getting this
error. We've installed samba on a Sun solaris unix box (Solaris 8) and the
samba version is 2.0.5a. I can change my network login password ok by
selecting the domain that controls the NT users and passwords. Not sure if
this error is something to do with samba on the unix server or something to
do with the NT side of things. On the unix side there's nothing shown in the
two samba logs (log.nmb and log.smb). Also nothing has changed on samba
since it last worked.
