I have Samba 3 running as a PDC on RedHat 9.0
15 XP, W2K and W98 workstations connect to it.

It is working fine.

However, the users cannot change their passwords from their workstations.
On XP, press ctrl-alt-del and select "change password".
Enter old password and new password twice. Click OK and receive the
following message:

"The server cannot change your password because the domain XXX is not

There is no other problem connecting to the domain or any share contained
within it.
