I was in the final stages of setting up my Samba AD DC when I realized 
I'd forgotten the password I assigned to the test user I setup. So I 
looked at samba-tool to figure out how to change it. And I see TWO 
password commands. I see samba-tool user password and user setpassword. 
The help messages says password is for the authentication password. 
Okay, so what's setpassword? And which would I use to test winbind 
authentication against the DC?  i.e. login to box2, box2 polls winbind, 
winbind polls box1 (AD DC) which replies with a yes or no for successful
