In [global] you want:
You need to set the correct values for:
passwd program (= /path/to/passwd %u)
passwd chat (distro dependant - something like this though: passwd chat =
*new*password* %n\\n*new*password* %n\\n *changed*)
unix password sync (= yes)
You could also use PAM:
PAM password change = yes
and delete the "passwd program" parameter.
The password chat is distro dependant - because it is based on what happens
if you type passwd <user> as root.
try typing man smb.conf - its suprisingly useful!
