Hi All,
     I have a Samba PDC on my Suse 9.3 machine serving up to 25 clients 
with a OpenLdap backend.The samba user password  also *sync's with the 
LDAP Password and the Local User password*. All Samba users also have a 
local user account which is used by IMAP Server Accounts & Cyrus 
Authentication on the same machine. (So, One Password to email and samba 
for all users, if the user changes his password from the client machine 
all the passwords are synchronized). Recently I have setup a BDC as well 
which is working fine with the OpenLdap Replica. I would like to know 
whether the Samba BDC will also synchronizes with the local user 
password on the BDC machine. My Replica LDAP is updated on the BDC but 
am not sure whether the local user password is updated by the BDC in the 
same way as the PDC does. (all user accounts are also created  on the 
BDC machine.).

Thank's in advance.
