Samba version 2.999+3.0cvs20020906-1 for Debian
Somehow the Samba password is aging and is requiring a reset once a
month for a couple of users. I can't see anything in the man pages to
indicate that the passwords age, so how is Samba doing it, and how do I
stop this behavior?
One user is on Windows 2000 and the other on Windows XP.
The Windows passwords are not aging and neither are the Linux passwords
on the Samba server itself, just the Samba password.
Plus, with the new *.tdb format, how do you see what users are there?
This seems to be a valid security hole if there is no Samba machanism to
see into this mysterious database to find out what settings are there
and to audit the users that might show up without authorization.
