After changing Windows AD password Samba\Winbind still uses old password


I have Samba\Winbind set-up on my server enabling user authentication back to our Windows Active Directory. I can logon to Linux using my Windows account without any problems.

My issue is when the user account in Windows has it's password changed the user can still login to Linux using the old password. The new password works too.

How do I configure the Samba\Winbind set-up not to cache passwords.

I have winbind cache time set to 15 seconds.
