Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-08-05 10:39:35 EDT
Not a bug - the default configuration is to synchronize the system password with
the samba password when set via samba. Look for passwd chat in smb.conf.
Comment 2 Andrew Bartlett 2002-09-01 06:59:58 EDT
The smbpasswd command, when run as root, will not cause any syncronisation to
occour.  Either the PAM configuration on the system has been set to use
pam_smbpass, or the password was changed as non-root, causing a 'password sync'.
