I'm pretty sure it's Solaris specific, I didn't have problems on my
CentOS box I've been using as a reference machine.  See this bug in
bugzilla: https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4863

The smbpasswd on my PDC (Solaris 9, Samba 3.026a) will truncate or
corrupt passwords over 8 chars.

The smbpasswd command on the linux clients (Samba 3.024a) is OK.
Anyone know if this is a samba version issue or something solaris
