[Samba] Passwords expiring

I have a Samba 3 server setup using LDAP for the backend. I keep
getting a message that the passwords will expire. This happened about a
month ago and I did not worry about it, because my XP machines kept
telling me this last year, but they never expired. I figured it was
something to do with XP and not my Samba server. This year though, with
my new server, they did expire and I had to reset them all. I thought I
went through and had it set where they would not expire. Maybe I did
and they will not, just like last year, but if they do, what do I need
to do so they do not expire?
Here is what I did when I reset them. I used the smbldap-usermod
program to change the expire time to a long, long time away.
smbldap-usermod -e "2999-01-01 01:01:01" -A 0 username
Shouldn't that tell it to make the passwords to expire on January 1, 2999?

Duct tape is like the force, it has a light side and a dark side and it
holds the universe together.
