This is my last (desperate) attempt to get the "unix password sync" working
I've been trying to get it working for weeks, but it still doesn't work.
Serverspecs: OS: FreeBSD 4.8-release
Samba is working as a PDC using roaming profiles. This works fine.
If the option "unix password sync" in smb.conf (available @
http://home.studenten.net/~dknies/smb.conf)is enabled, the next situation
1) Root can change the unix-and smbpasswd for all users
2) A regular user kan chage his unix password using the 'passwd' command
Changing local password for dennis.
Retype new password:
passwd: updating the database...
This user isn't abled to change the smbpassword using the 'smbpasswd'
Old SMB password:
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
machine 127.0.0.1 rejected the password change: Error was : RAP86: The
specified password is invalid.
Failed to change password for dennis
I'm sure the Old Password wasn't invalid. And the most strange thing is:
The unixpassword is changed into the net smbpassword.
3) When a regular users wants to change his password in win2k (All the
clients are win2k overhere) this error will pop up:
The system cannot change your password now because the domain
FreeBSDgroup is not available
I can't find errors in my logfiles which tell me anything about the errors
or the solutions.
Because I'm _really_ desperate I deinstalled everything on my system, but
the error keeps alive.
Can someone tell me anything about this problem, because I really don't
have a clue...
Thanks in advance,
