Hi Fred !
I think that's not possible on the Samba-Side in the moment. But you can
make it on the client side (for example in the logon script): net accounts
Just type "net accounts" on the command-line for a brief description.

Kind regards

Betreff: [Samba] Password expiry

Hi all,

I am running samba-2.2.6 on RH62 providing local
workgroup shares for a mixture of 98/NT/2000/XP
clients. I'd like to configure samba to somehow detect
when a password is expired and pop up a box on the
client workstation to require users to change their

Is this possible? Does it work on all of 98/NT/2000/XP

I've tried various /usr/bin/passwd command-line
arguments to actually expire someone's password, but
that also doesn't seem to work. It seems to get
ignored entirely.

Can someone with more experience than myself provide
the information necessary to make this happen?
