Hi. I wanted to test password sync. I only have one linux
server, with no windows PCs around. When I change the
password with smbpasswd the sync is not executed. I wonder
why ? Maybe smbpasswd access directly the database.

Is there a way I can test it from within only one linux box ?

This is ubuntu hoary, with samba 3.0.10-1. samba config :

unix password sync = yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n 
*Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .
passdb backend = tdbsam

I tried both
   pam password change = yes
and no.
