ldap password sync with samba and unix user account
I setup openldap and samba on 9.10. The ubuntu desktop client gets authenticated successfully with the server.
But when I do a passwd on the client, only the ldap passwd is getting changed but not in the samba and the unix user account.
Enter login(LDAP) password:
Re-enter new password:
LDAP password information changed for username
passwd: password updated successfully
But only the ldap password is getting changed and not in the samba and unix user account.
unix password sync = yes
but same result.
Am I missing something?
can some one pls help me out on this?
This is pretty logical as you are only changing the ldap password with passwd. Passwd doesn't read the samba configuration.
Try to use smbpasswd, that will probably work.
Tried with smbpasswd and unix passwd sync yes (in smb.conf) still the same result. But when I type smbpasswd from the terminal (on server) the password is getting changed for both samba and unix account. Do I need to change the passwd chat script in smb.conf?
Where I can see the logs for these password changes? /var/log/samba/log* does not seem to have logged any password changes.
I think you have too many references in your config and I am not sure if they can overrule each other.
