[Samba] probleb with 'passwd chat' and 'passwd program'

simply put,

when unix password sync = yes is used, SAMBA tries to
update password in /etc/passwd which I believe you don't have the entry
in it; this option is helpful when you use flat file sambapasswd 

attributes are ok because SAMBA doesn't look at /etc/passwd

Well, i add it for the 'passwd program' to be called as root (as said

the man of smb.conf). Otherwise, it is not called.

I know that i can remove this and only add 'ldap passwd sync = Yes' but

i just want to understand why my script is not finished.

And i also tried samba with Oracle Internet Database : everything work

perfectly, exept the update of userPassword. Why ? i don't know. Samba

can update all others attribut, but not this one !

That's why i also need to use an external script.
