Hello list,

  I'd like to have an advice about how to configure samba
with password quality compliance.

  My file server is running samba 3.0.10 with a ldap backend
and the users change their passwords regularly, all runs
fine expect for the weak passwords that users choose, they
are very simple ones like _12345678_ or _qwertyui_. All I
can do with samba is impose a password length but it is
clearly insufficient.

Please note that in my country personal data must satisfy some
laws and they force us to update passwords regularly.

I know that cracklib support was removed and the choice seems
PAM but no password directive support is present with this
version. I wonder how other admins resolved this problem.

Thank you.
