I'm trying to migrate to samba4 and had the following issue:
I have SSSD configured to authenticate users on linux machines that I get
from a samba4 service through LDAP endpoint. Users are successfuly
authenticated in the system, but I can't manage to change password of these
users from command line. When I try to use passwd command, i got the
Password change failed. Server message: Extended
Operation( not supported
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
passwd: password unchanged
I saw in another forums that it's possible to bypass this error changing
permissions from the user that is authenticating on LDAP base to write
other users passwords, but in this case it's a samba4 base using a LDAP
interface. Is it possible to grant this kind of permission to the user
authenticating through LDAP?
