Description Raul 2007-07-03 12:48:57 UTC
When using the pam_smbpass.so module to update the users LDAP,NT/LM passwords via the passwd command, it successfully updates both passwords, but still reports a failure.

Reason: on line passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldapsam_modify_entry:1408
ber_printf (ber, "N}");
N is an invalid option for  ber_printf();
