[Samba] Samba does not change UNIX password after OpenLDAP server upgraded

I have been running Samba with OpenLDAP for a few years.  We recently 
upgrade the OpenLDAP server from 2.2.13 to 2.4.11.

When users change their passwords now, only the Windows password is 
changed the UNIX password is not changed anymore.  Samba server does not 
log any errors   The samba configuration file did not change when the 
LDAP server was upgraded.

I do have "ldap passwd sync =Yes" in smb.conf and it used to work fine.

Has anyone seen this?

If I use

unix password sync = Yes
passwd program = /opt/IDEALX/sbin/smbldap-passwd -u %u
passwd chat = "Changing password for*\nNew password*" %n\n "*Retype new 
password*" %n\n"

instead of "ldappasswd sync", what access control do I have to add to 
the slapd.conf file?

Thank you very much for your help!
