I don't know of any way to do that with Samba.

I have been searching for this for a long time.

Similarly, I would want to set expiry dates and have a message prompt the user for a new password when the expiry date is near. Pretty much the way Windows does it.

I was reading through the Samba mail archives at Samba.org the other day.

One of the developers was saying that these issues have been addressed by Samba 2.2.8 or something like that. It is a pre-release that is still being tested.

You will need to configure Samba to work with Openldap. The pre-release is available for download.

Sorry I didn't keep the link, but you should be able to find it. It was in February or January's archive.

Hei Jamrock

I was reading samba mail archives too, and I discovery:

"Use Samba 3.0alpha and pdb_ldap. In pdb_ldap, you want to set the 'pwdMustChange' attribute to 0. " (Andrew Bartlett)

http://lists.samba.org/pipermail/sam...ry/090884.html

Samba 3.0Alpha
http://us1.samba.org/samba/ftp/alpha/WHATSNEW.txt

Ok... I installed Samba3.0 alpha with a RPM package in RH8.0, but I dont know work with pdb_ldap

Code:
# rpm -qa | grep ldap
openldap-devel-2.0.27-2.8.0
nss-ldap-1983
openldap-2.0.27-2.8.0
You can help me, please?

Searching I discovered that I have that to use pdb_ldap, but it would like to know as I install and/or I configure it in the Red Hat 8.0:

# rpm -qa | grep ldap
openldap-devel-2.0.27-2.8.0
nss-ldap-1983
openldap-2.0.27-2.8.0

It is sufficient or need downloading more packages to pdb_ldap?

Sorry, I am a in the subject, and my native language is not this :-(

Very thank's

I haven't looked at Samba 3.0 yet so I can't help.

I can give you a link to a tutorial on using ldap with Samba. Hope this can help. Take a look at Samba 2.2.8 though. Setting it up should be similar to what has been done in the tutorial.

http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/esdd/tu...dap/index.html

There was a post last month by someone who was setting up Samba to work with ldap. He/she may be able to help.

Setting up Samba with ldap seemed a bit complicated and I didn't see any advantages over using the smbpasswd file. This expire password is a good reason to give it a shot, however.

Your English is good enough. I can understand what you are saying.

Hello jamrock!

First, thank you for the attention

I will go to study the tutorial one that he passed me, and I go to see if the staff of the list of the SAMBA has a little more than patience with me

I find other tutorial - Samba (v.3) PDC LDAP howto:
http://www.unav.es/cti/ldap-smb/smb-ldap-3-howto.html

I go to leave link to help using futures here...

Thank you for everything, also for the compliment to my English stocking-mouth

Brazilian regard's to the people of Jamaica
