The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1724
(PAM) unix password sync
Last modified: 2006-04-08 22:32:53 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)
