I've been trying to set up external password sync to Google Apps -- and
went so far as to write a script, before realizing "unix password sync" and
"passwd program" etc., don't seem to be working in samba 4.2.0 rc2 in AD DC

I also stumbled on this prior list posting saying unix password sync
doesn't work -- though the MAN pages suggest this is supported:

Are there any plans to support unix password sync while samba is an AD DC?

Alternatively, is there a better way to intercept changed samba passwords
for sync with other services?
