you need to setup some password policies.. I was just playing with this
a couple days ago.. seems to work very nicely :)
It stores all the information in the LDAP Entry for the Domain
anyway.. here's the link I learnt from:
specifically, you need to set the "password history" setting.
I don't think you can just modify the entries in ldap.. I think you have
to use pdbedit, as stated on the document..
good luck :)
