I'm using the version 3.0.23c-1 (Debian Package) and the problem still there. If I try to modify the password using User Manager the sambaKickoffTime attribute turns 0.
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #3493 +++
i posted first on list, but got no response, so i�ll try here, because it looks like a bug - the question is only, if samba or usrmgr causes this bug (or if it�s by design).
when changing a domain userpassword (with smbpasswd or directly from windows client NT-series) sambaKickOffTime is handled correctly (= not reset). when changing a password with MS NT Usermanager (on MS Client), sambaKickOffTime is being reset (to "0" = never).
thank you in advance for figuring this out!
if you want i can provide you offline with level 10 debug. probably you can reproduce this behaviour, too.
