Change Samba password from Windows


I know this question has been posted a million times on forums throughout the web, but I can't seem to resolve my problem.

I run a standalone samba server on a Workgroup with XP and 2000 machines.

When a user decides to change their password or has their password expire, I want that password to sync with the samba server.

Couple of questions, can this be done with a standalone server or does it need to be a Primary Domain Controller?


Here is my smb.conf.....


# Global parameters

workgroup = G2Staff
netbios name = Samba
security = user
server string = Samba Server
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.
encrypt passwords = yes
update encrypted = no
wins support = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
unix password sync = yes
passwd chat debug = false
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *new password*%n\n *new password*%n\n *changed*

#typical user

[frontdesk]
comment = frontdesk
path = /home/frontdesk/Docs
valid users = frontdesk root
force user = frontdesk
public = no
writeable = yes
printable = no
read only = no
browseable = yes
