Dear All,

I have compiled 3.0.30/3.2.0 on a Solaris 10 Generic_127111-09. Samba
3.0.25a was a package from http://www.sunfreeware.com/indexsparc10.html
The samba share works fine with Windows XP client on all versions. I
have tried to test the password expiry feature using the command below:

pdbedit -P "maximum password age" -C 300	

If I now try on log on the samba logs quite correctly says my password
has expired. On the client end (XP) on trying to map the drive it just
keeps on prompting for a password (this happens on 3.0.25a/3.0.30/3.2.0)
- It does not inform me that the current password has expired  -  please
put a new one in.

 I have installed  3.0.25a also from
http://www.sunfreeware.com/indexsparc8.html on a Solaris 8
Generic_117350-53. When I expire the password on this, it correctly
prompts me to renew my password - see below:

I would much appreciate any input. As both the smb.conf files are
identical. Is there a flag I need to invoke in compiling the code to
renew the password as the current one has expired or is this a "feature"
of Solaris 10?
