We have ClearCase database on unix and users on windows.
We are creating Unix users locally on that Clearcase server. Samba is also 
installed on that server.

User windows machines are part of domain. Groups,usres are created on 
domain and same users,groups are created on unix server.

Now problem is occuring when a windows user is changing the password for 
his domain login. as soon as user is changing the password user will be 
unable to access the samba share i.e clearcase vobs. So when user changes 
the domain login password we have to manully change samba password for 
that user by running

smbpasswd <userbname>.

Could you please guide me on how to achieve or any configuration need to 
done on samba and on unix server so that I need not have to change 
password manully for every user when user changes his/her windows domian 
login password.

My samba config fiel is as below

# Samba config file created using SWAT

# Global parameters
        workgroup = RIC_F2K
        netbios name = DEVVM
        interfaces = devvm
        security = DOMAIN
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server =
        username map = /usr/local/samba/private/username.map
        #username map = /usr/local/samba/lib/username.map
        log file = /var/opt/samba/logs/log.%m
        os level = 0
        kernel oplocks = No
        create mask = 0775
        directory mask = 0775
        oplocks = No
        time offset = 30
#       time offset = 630
#       time server = yes
#       comment = Share Folder of devvm Server
#       path = /var/smbshare
