Replace the _space_ immediately following the U in the smbpasswd file with
"X" for each user.  It's a bit of a pain, but it works.

change [U        ]
to [UX       ]

I have setup samba on redhat 7.3 and configured it as a windows 2000
Primary Domain Controller. Everything works fine, however, everytime that
Windows NT or 2000 clients log onto the domain they get a message stating
that their password has expired and asking them if they want to change it.
It doesn't matter if you answer Yes and change it or answer No and just
continue on, the message appears everytime.

Has anyone seen this before? Can anyone offer any advice.
