[Samba] "passwd program" in samba4

Dear Andrew,

We encounter the same problem. For over 10 years we've been using Samba (2,
then 3) with OpenLDAP (and then 389 DS) backend. We have perfectly working
LDAP environment with replication, well tuned, with many additional
attributes and with a lot of non-samba related services (email, mailing
list, address book, user specific data). For all that time we had
comfortable situation, that the users had to remeber just one password.

And now, if I understand the situation correctly, there is no way to keep
the password synchronized between Samba4 and external LDAP. I don't need to
authenticate samba against external LDAP, but I want to somehow trigger
password change in LDAP in case of  changing it in Windows, and vice-versa.

And I really think that migration of our well known and fully functional
LDAP system, which is the core of our environment, is not the best and
proper way.

Did we reached a dead end?

kind regards
