shadowLastChange (a specific LDAP attribute for objectClass
shadowAccount  that doesn't have to be there at all) has nothing to do
with Samba or Windows.

> unix password sync = yes

userPassword is an LDAP attribute for objectClass posixAccount that
*does* have to be there for Samba.  "unix password sync = yes" applies
to posixAccount, not to shadowAccount.
