I had the same situation (Solaris 10, Sun Dir Server, Samba 3.0.33.)
I wrote an external script to change the password. Make sure the script
is owned by root and with perms 600 or 700 since it needs the LDAP super
unix password sync = yes
passwd program = /etc/samba/smbldappasswd.sh %u
ldap passwd sync = no
echo -n New password:
date >> /etc/samba/smbldappasswd.log
echo $USER >> /etc/samba/smbldappasswd.log
echo $NEWPASS >> /etc/samba/smbldappasswd.log
/opt/SUNWdsee/dsee6/bin/ldappasswd -h obelix -D "cn=Directory Manager"
-w *** -v -s $NEWPASS $USER
