Description salam 2008-05-23 22:11:59 UTC
Hi,

I am using samba 3.0.25b and using tdbsam back end. I want to enforce
password policy "User must change password on next logon". I assume
this can be done by changing "password must change" value in the tdbsam
user record using pdbedit. But the below command is not working for me,


pdbedit --pwd-must-change-time="2010-01-01" \
            --time-format="%Y-%m-%d" username

 Though i made it happen using net command.

Appreciate if you can give a solution for this :) Reportedly one of the official
maintainer of samba how to's claimed it is not working with 3.0.29 too..

Please file a Bugzilla bug report. It appears to be broken in 3.0.29.  I can 
reproduce the problem.  Thanks for making us aware of this.
