According to the documentation, Samba 3 supports account lockouts (ie:
bad password attempt 5 times will result in the PDC returning an
NT_STATUS_ACCOUNT_LOCKED_OUT message, until the account is manually
reset with pdbedit).

This syntax I'm using appears to be correct, but I'm not actually
getting actual account lockouts:

pdbedit -P "bad lockout attempt" -C 5
- and -
pdbedit -P "bad lockout attempt"
...prints the right response.

So does anyone have account lockouts working with Samba 3 acting as a

I've tried the tdbsam backend without any luck (and building Samba
with MySQL support yields the dreaded "Could not determine network
interfaces" error message).

Thanks in advance for any responses.
