Hello again, after having solved the previous message i am now 
encountering this new one :
When i want to change a user password being connected as this user i get 
the following error :
    test at ldap:~$ smbpasswd -r ldap -U test
    Old SMB password:
    New SMB password:
    Retype new SMB password:
    machine ldap rejected the password change: Error was : RAP86: The 
specified password is         invalid.
    Failed to change password for test

But when I am root i am allowed to change the password :
    ldap:~#  smbpasswd  -U test
    New SMB password:
    Retype new SMB password:
    Password changed for user test.

Any piece of advice??? (unless i find out myself... ;-) )
