I am running samba 2.2.6 on my network as a PDC with all the clients being
either win2k or XP. I have successfully connected the clients to the PDC.
My one problem is that when any of the clients attempt to change their
password via <cntrl>-<alt>-<del> the following error occurs after entering
their current password and the new password twice.
The User name or old password is incorrect. Letters in the passwords must
be typed using the correct case.
I have double checked the passwords and everthing is correct. To add
another twist, if you shutdown and then restart, you must use the new
password to log back in. Do any of you know how to avoid this problem or
what I must do to eliminate this problem?
Also how do I specify a time limit on the password so my clients are forced
to change them every 60 days?
Here is the smb.conf I am currently using:
# samba configuration file
# basic server settings
workgroup = labnet
netbios name = pdcsrv1
server string = Samba PDC running %v
socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192
# PDC and master browser settings
os level = 64
preferred master = yes
local master = yes
domain master = yes
wins support = yes
# security and logging settings
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
domain logons = yes
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
log level = 2
max log size = 50
# hosts allow = 127.0.0.1 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0
# user profiles and home directory
logon home = ""
logon path = ""
# logon script = netlogon.bat
logon script = %u.bat
#sync UNIX passwords
unix password sync = yes
smb passwd = /usr/local/private/smbpasswd
passwd program = /usr/local/bin/smbpasswd %u
passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new**password* %n\n
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
path = /home/netlogon
read only = yes
write list = jeffm
thanks for your assistance,
