If you use the unix boxes just for storing data, you don't need user
passwords there - the samba server just forwards the authentication to
the domain controller.
If users also work under unix you can
a) install the Services for Unix from M$
b) have a try with https://sourceforge.net/projects/acctsync
Look at a tool called passwdHK.dll. This lib can be called
everytime a user changes his/her password and can then forward it to
any program you like (e.g. perl script).
c) use kerberos trusts (sounds complicated and certainly is - don't ask
me about details, I don't use kerberos).
I prefer solution b).
