[Samba] winbind and AD password updates

I've been trying to get password changes to work from a SuSE machine to 
an AD server. Authentication works fine in AD mode, so at least that bit 
is correct.

When trying to change the password, I get PAM error 4 back. Checking in 
the logs, I see that winbind fails with the error 

 From Microsoft's documentation, I can read that this means that there 
is some password policy that's rejecting the new password. But I cannot 
find any such policy on the server, so I'm wondering if this can be 
caused by something else?

I'm also a bit confused as to how I can get NT error codes in AD mode. 
Isn't it supposed to talk kerberos?
