	Is there a way to migrate "smbpasswd" files, specifically, the nthash'ed 
version of the password into Active Directory on a Windows 2003 server?  

We are trying to expand our services to include things that depend on active 
directory, however, we do not want create support problems for ourselves 
while migrating to AD.  We currently have no problem creating users in active 
directory using a PHP script.  But...   We do not have a clear text version 
of their passwords, so we would like to use the NT/LM hashes stored via 

Any Ideas?   Any way of doing this would be greatly appreciated.
