i installed samba with openldap support and all works fine ...
I used scripts called smbldap_passwd (from idealx) to change the password of
users on the linux server.
I modified the parameter of the file smbldap.conf "hash_encrypt" to
PLAINTEXT (I know it's dangerous but it's just for test).
When i change the user's password with the command smblda_password , the
encrpytion's format is good for the 3 following passwords :
sambalmpassword,sambantpassword and userPassword.So the userPassword 's format
is PLAINTEXT. All is good.
But when a user change his password under windows XP or 2000 (ctrl-alt-sup +
change password), it's ok but the userpassword 's format has changed .The format
is SMD5 and not plaintext.
what configuration'file i have to change to keep format plaintext when a user
change his password under windows xp/2000?
Thanks for your help
