The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 4902
manual page for smb.conf and %o substitution
Last modified: 2007-08-29 10:32:18 UTC
The example in the smb.conf man page mentions a %o substitution for the old password:
Example: passwd chat = "*Enter OLD password*" %o\n "*Enter NEW password*"
%n\n "*Reenter NEW password*" %n\n "*Password changed*"
Nevertheless, the passwd programm never receives the old password.
Why is %o mentioned?
Should that example be removed?
mark, %o is only available when using encrypt passwords = no
and possibly is some odd configurations with Windows 9x.
I'll add a note in the docs.
