If you are running the Samba AD DC, then for 4.5 you can use the
'samba-tool user syncpasswords' tool.  

For Samba 4.7 you can use the new 'password hash userPassword schemes'
option to store a crypt() password when the user's password is changed,
rather than a GPG encrypted plaintext.

The 'passwd program' does not operate on the AD DC.

I hope this helps,
