That's the point, with "pam password change" option set, the 'password
program' and the 'password chat' options get ignored (at least that's what i
have understood from the documentation)

It gaves me the next errors:
a) "pam password change" set to Yes
Could not connect to machine 127.0.0.1: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
b) "pam password change" not set
SAMR connection to machine NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED failed. Error was
127.0.0.1, but LANMAN password changed are disabled
I have found the bug 2128  related to the b) situation

In FreeBSD that problem does not exist because passwd command has implemented
NIS support (no need to specify '-r nis'), so it changes the user password on
Thanks a lot for your answer, i think it could work changing the way windows
authenticates in the domain...
