Sort of, the password is not set when the installation is done, This is
due to the fact that we dont know the password set during installation
when the samba password is ready to be set. And it should be different
from the password used for ldap admin, since the samba password is
stored on the main server (samba domain controller), not in plain text,
but almost. You need to be root to retreive it, but ...
