> Is there a way that we can increment the samba bad password count, when a user fails a password on a linux system? I'm looking for ways to get both Windows and Linux to simultaneously lock out accounts if they fail so many times. We're using an LDAP backend.

How about "obey pam restrictions = yes" ?

"obey pam restrictions = yes" means Samba should obey PAM's restriction.
