Did you copy the samba schema file from samba 3.3.3 to the schema dir of =
openldap, replacing the old one from samba 3.0.24
I once had the same issue after a upgrade from 3.0.x to 3.3.x, i did not =
have the password issue but the roaming profile issue i remember quite =
well ;-)
After the copy (which is a pretty normal thing, but easy to forget) =
things where running as before.
