I'm new in this list and i'm quite new to samba.
I'm trying to configure samba as a PDC for a Windows XP network.
Samba version: 3.2.5 on Debian Lenny 5.0.4
The domain works, as well profiles. The problem is the "unix password
My values are:
|unix password sync = yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *Retype*new*UNIX*password* %n\n
*Enter* new*UNIX*password* %n\n *Retype*new*UNIX*password* %n\n *passwd:
When i try to change the password from the windows client using an
account of the domain
(Ctrl+Alt+Canc and then Change password) I get the following message:
You do not have permission to change your password.
I noticed that when I try to change a password on the server (as root)
It changes the samba password only, but not the linux one.
If I login the server as a user of the domain and I try:
I put the old password, then the new and I get the following:
"SAMR connection to machine NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED failed. Error was
127.0.0.1, but LANMAN password changed are disabled.
Failed to change password for <user-name>"
I googled a lot and I found lot of people asking about problems like
this but no solutions.
Anyway I hope someone can help me with this :-)
What I tryied:
1) I'm Italian, so I tried to change the passwd chat, but didn't work.
2) I've set
lanman auth = yes
client lanman auth = yes
and then when I try (as a domain user)
I get a different error: "machine 127.0.0.1 rejected the password
change: Error was : RAP86: The specified password is invalid.
Password changed for user <user-name>"
But the password don't change!
I hope someone can give me some hint to solve the problem :-)
