At first: You can't define password policies via GPO, because they have
to be interpreted by the domain controller(s) and Samba doesn't know
anything about GPOs and what to do with them. Set password stuff domain
wide via 'samba-tool domain passwordsettings'.


To find out, if there's another problem, we have to know more about the
situation: Does the password change says that it was successfully? What
do the logs say about the password change and when the user tries to
logon with the new password? And is the password usable, if you change
it via samba-tool/ADUC?
