I'll come back on this a little.
> There's no a pam module that do what smbpasswd do?
seems really that pam_smbpass works as expected, because are SAM-aware,
but need the availability, locally, of the SAM account database, eg
every client need not only to be a domain workstation, but also a DC,
or at least it is needed to define locally passdb backend, ldap *, and
A little too much for a 'simple' client configuration.
Still i'm confused about the fact that, with a simple smb.conf
configuration (eg, security = domain) i can simply use:
smbpasswd -r invernomuto
and change my password.
Looking at the source (utils/smbpasswd.c and
pam_smbpass/pam_smb_passwd.c) seems that the only difference is that
the first call:
and the latter:
I'm not a real c programmer, and i've not digged around all the code,
but seems that it is a matter to add a new parameter to the pam module
(dc=, eg) and change the function.
Please, say me something...
