The only way I can think of that would apply some policies to some
users and a different policy to others would be a GPO. But I'm not
entirely sure if password complexity reqs. can be applied selectively
via GPO. [I think so, but I've never tried it - and the docs sure
look like it's possible.]

In any case, if it IS possible, it's not a "Samba" thing, it's a AD GPO
thing and looking at the docs from MS would be the place to look/ask.
