[Samba] passwords expiring

My passwords have expired again in my LDAP/Samba setup.  I have been 
reading in the Samba How-To and just want to make sure this is what I 
need to do before I try it.

If I want to have my passwords expire in the year 2015, do I need to do 
the following to all of my users?

pdbedit --pwd-must-change-time="2015-01-01" --time-format="%Y-%m-%d" 

Using the ldap-usermod has not seemed to do anything.  I have reset them 
twice with:

smbldap-usermod -e "2014-01-01 01:01:01" -A 0 username

and they are still expring after around 40 days.

Thanks for the help.
