I have Samba 2.2.5 running on Solaris8.  I have tried to set it
up so that when the user changes his/her password that the NIS 
passwd will also be changed.  Since it calls /usr/bin/passwd, it
seems like it should do it.

I have tried to change my passwd and the SWAT web pages gives
the following error:

machine rejected the password change: Error was: RAP86: The
specified password was invalid.

In the global section, I have for passwd program:
/usr/bin/passwd %u.
