Description of problem:
I'm running Samba PDC with ldap backend (openldap-2.0.27-20) to serve small development domain and I was uning "ldap passwd sync = Yes" in samba configuration file to synchronize unix passwords.
I used to be working just fine on RHEL3U2 with samba-3.0.2-6.3E but after upgrade to RHEL3U6 with samba-3.0.9-1.3E.5 it seized updating unix passwords in ldap.
As a workaround I falled back to using "unix password sync = Yes" and smbldap-passwd script, but I like the first option more.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup Samba PDC with openldap-2.0.27-20 for password backend
2. set option "ldap passwd sync = Yes"
3. Add a workstation to the domain (In my case it is Windows 2003 terminal server)
4. Change password
5. Make sure unix login is cinfigure with pam authentication against same ldap server.
6. Try to login to the same account using unix terminal using new password and the login should fail.
Actual Results: Unix login fails.
Expected Results: Unix login should succed.
