I'm aware of the password sync options in smb.conf, which synchronize the
Unix password when users change their password from Windows.
But is there a PAM module or something that would sync. the Samba password
when the Unix password is changed?
I'm not using LDAP. This is a simple Linux/Debian system with Samba 3.0.10
and shadow passwords.
Also, how can I enforce a policy to have decent passwords, and have bad
passwords refused, both from the Unix/passwd side and the
In this network, users have their passwords set to their login name!
Well, now that I would like to give them access to their IMAP mail etc.
from outside the LAN, I cannot simply explain to them that they have to get
into better password habits. I have to also force it on them.
Thanks for any help/pointers.
