If you run passwd to change a password, I get the following error on solaris
systems (I am using samba 3.0alpha15):

Supported configurations for passwd management are as follows:
    passwd: files
    passwd: files ldap
    passwd: files nis
    passwd: files nisplus
    passwd: compat
    passwd: compat AND
    passwd_compat: ldap OR
    passwd_compat: nisplus

Putting the winbind in /etc/nsswitch on the passwd: and group: line causes
this.  This is a big problem.
