Hi, once I have upgraded my samba installation two weeks ago,
I noticed that ldap passwd sync = yes doesn't work.

Samba does not update userPassword attribute in LDAP database.

One can update it calling smbldap-passwd or ldappasswd,
both work just fine. So definitely permissions are OK.
And it was working before, I am sure.

Let me know if any extra feedback or testing is needed.

I noticed that samba complains about not being able to find rootDSE,
and than requesting the password update non-supported by the LDAP server.

So, I realized, that I need to make my rootDSE on LDAP accessible.
Though, it is strange, since samba binds to ldap using superuser
Solved by adding to slapd.conf:

access to dn.exact=""
                by self write
                by users read
                by * auth
