[Samba] Disabling Password Expiration

Is there any way to DISABLE password expiration in the Samba password 

We're handling password expiration externally, and would manually 
change the password on the samba servers as needed by the centralized 
password database.

Any thoughts? I thought it might be something "client based" but I just 
discovered that my account, which has never logged in using a Windows 
machine, was returning NT_STATUS_PASSWORD_EXPIRED, so I know it's not a 
"windows-client-set" thing, but something that the server stores.

Any thoughts?
