Can I get some assistance with this?

things work just fine without the synchronization?
Any suggestions?

Does anyone have it working with solaris10?

Subject: password syncronization issue...


Has anyone had any success with samba-3.25[a-c] under solaris10 amd64
using 'unix password sync=yes' option?

% smbpasswd
Old SMB password:
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
machine rejected the password change: Error was : RAP86: The
specified password is invalid. Password changed for user sambatest

debugging reveals the following condition:

my config is:

security = user
bind interfaces only = yes
interfaces=e1000g0 lo0
passwd program = /bin/passwd %u
passdb backend = tdbsam unix password sync = yes 
encrypt passwords =yes 
local master = no 
log level=5 

Thanks in advance.
