I'm having some issues with samba 3 and my ldap passwords. First I'll tell
you what I'm working with.

Ldap server is RH 7.3 and openldap 2.0.25 DBM (RPM From Eric)

Samba 3.0.2a-1 using ldapsam_compat (Compiled from RPM source by me ) on

Samba 2.2.8-1.ldap (RPM from Eric) on RH9

The Samba 2 works great. Auth against ldap no problem.

The Samba 3 does not work.. Well not really. If I change the users password
using smbldap-passwd.pl (or the ldap webmin module) to the same (or
different) password they had before it works.

When I look at the nt and lan hashes in the ldap records they have not

It's almost like I need to some how touch the ldap record for it to work

This is really confusing.. Any one have an idea?
