Is this an XP machine?

Do you have password sync enabled?  If password sync is enabled BUT the chat
script (or whatever mechanism you use to change the unix password) is broken
then password change can fail.   The first thing I would try would be
disabling the password sync feature and seeing if that works.

How do I enable the password changing via ctrl+alt+del on a
windows workstation? This function worked on my previous PDC
but I can't get it work on my actual PDC.

I looked at the samba log file of the workstation and I saw
the following line:
"user XXXX cannot change password now, must wait until

Debian GNU Linux 5.0
Samba 3.5.5
