Dear Sirs,

I want to duplicate users from samba to AD. One-to-one convertion, nothing 

The problem is: password synchronization. AD allows LDAP connection and 
there is even special attribute for storing password (unicodePwd), that 
attribute cannot be read, but can be written under some circumstances:


I cannot figure out what to do, because that attribute must be written in 
clear, not NT/LM hash.

Any idea how to syncronize password between samba and AD ?
Or maybe any idea how to make AD go to samba and ask samba to authenticate 
users ?
