This doesn't work for me either. Red Hat RHAS3, so I change things in
system-auth, not passwd.
However, quick and dirty solution: 'mv /usr/bin/passwd
/usr/bin/passwd.orig', 'ln -s /usr/bin/smbpasswd /usr/bin/passwd'.
That works for me and even updates my LDAP database, as passwd does.
Every user that uses it *must* already be a Samba user, though - in LDAP
that means that he has to have a sambaSamAccount objectClass attribute
before it will work.
