Using lwat to change their password, ensures that linux(userPassword) and samba(sabmaNTPassword and smbaLMPassword) passwords are the same. passwd only changes linux(userPassword), I have never looked into why that is, and fixing it would still mean that the users would have to use a different way to change passwords from within windows, better to use lwat, that works from everywhere. -- Klaus Ade Mobil:93869567 67E61D18B2C44F8A3DA35C6D849F9F5F 26FA477D
