>I am sorry if this is a lame question, but I am setting up a Primary

Windows >2K or XP. I need the clients to reset their passwords every 30
days. I am having a hard time locating a procedure to set this feature.
LINUX has >'chage' but that does not seem to apply to SAMBA.

Samba 2.x does not have this built in.  Looks like Samba 3.0 will have this
as a feature.  For now you get to do it yourself.  If you check the
archives you'll find a number of homebrew solutions to password aging.
