It relates to my last question: is there any way to for unix->NT
password conversion ? 

I need to create ntAccounts from my shadow passwords (crypt-ed) in the
Ldap server. It seems there's no supported way but two problems emerge
in here:

1) you have to ask lots of people to type their passwords again
2) you have no control maintain same password policy
