Hi all
I am running Samba 2.2.8a on Solaris 8 with winbind and pam configured. 
I use the following keywords in my nsswitch.conf:
passwd:     files winbind
group:      files winbind
Now local users on the Solaris 8 machine cannot change there password
the passwd command:
Here is the sample output:
># passwd abcdef
>Enter new password: 
>Enter new password again: 
>Supported configurations for passwd management are as follows:
>    passwd: files
>    passwd: files ldap
>    passwd: files nis
>    passwd: files nisplus
>    passwd: compat
>    passwd: compat AND
>    passwd_compat: ldap OR
>    passwd_compat: nisplus
>Please check your /etc/nsswitch.conf file
>Permission denied
Does anybody have a solution for this ?
Thanks & Greetz
