OpenLDAP and passwords

I have setup a OpenLDAP server and i am using it to handle logins from our drupal community site using some ldap modules. This works perfectly!

I also managed to login with Linux and Mac OS X clients, and i configured Samba so it's also using OpenLDAP. This also works!

But, the problem is when you reset your password in a Mac OS X client or in the Drupal website, the samba password doesn't change. Is there a way to say to OpenLDAP that when you update the attribute A also update attribute B?

I am searching the web for 3 days now and i was not able to find such setting, so i am wondering if it's even possible?

Thanks in advanced!

It's possible :

You can also do a php script which stores passwords in the three ldap fields (dunno which).


drupal, openldap, os x, samba
