No luck il still gives me the same stuff :
test at ldap:/etc/samba$ smbpasswd -r ldap
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
Something that I have also noticed is that in my smb.conf : when I put
unix password sync = no in the following password section :
passwd program = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-passwd.pl -o %u
passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *ReType*new*UNIX*password* %n\n
unix password sync = no
It seems to work just fine, but when I put unix password sync = yes, I
encounter the RAP86 problem. According to me, my password program
(smbldap-passwd.pl from idealx) can't manage to write both samba and
unix passwords at the same time.
still in the need of help, but nevertheless thanking James Kosin for his
