Description David Markey 2009-04-02 17:13:10 UTC
usrmgr, which creating a new user ticking "user must change password on next logon" doesn't take effect, the administrator has to go into the user properties of the newly created user to tick the box.

I'm using an LDAP backend. Its probably advisable to use different back-ends.

Also an issue on 3.2(and possibly 3.0)

tested the 3-3-test patch with ldapsam successfully as well.

Closing, as the (tested) backport patch has been pushed to 3-3-test and will be in next releases.

The remaining problem is the use of the smbk5pwd OpenLDAP overlay when used with ldapsam. The smbk5pwd is not part of Samba.
