hi Fabiano,
hi Edmundo,

the second problem here ("user has no permission") when using an
external passwd program sounds familiar to me:

At least on Solaris this "You do not have permissions to change your
password"-behaviour is a known problem. See Bug-ID 5121 for details and
a patch for Samba 3.0.28.
kind regards,
