Description Mario Lipinski 2004-09-06 09:29:21 UTC
unix password sync with pam works quite fine.
when changing the password from a win2k workstation from CTRL+ALT+DEL -> Change
Password and using smbpasswd as a normal user from a linux/unix console works.
The passwords get synced.
But when i do a smbpasswd as root (e.g. a user "forgot" his pass), only the
smbpass is changed - not the unix password (pam).

i want to have synced passwords all the time - though i dont like this behaviour
and mark this as a bug.

This is by design.  only password changes through smbd (vix CIFS or RPC)
are synchronized.
