I'm in the middle of Samba 3.0.9 ==> 3.0.14a migration testing. Because I'm using newer tools, I am also using a newer verions of the Samba LDAP Tools.
My older version, 0.8.4, used the 'mkntpwd' utility to generate NT passwords. The new version, 0.9.1 defaults to using (what looks like) a Perl module called Crypt::SmbHash.
My questions: Do I need to continue to use mkntpwd? Will I need to reset all the passwords for my users if I move to Crypt::SmbHash? Or will it "just work" if I leave the defaults alone?
