NAME

       smbldap-passwd - change user password

SYNOPSIS

       smbldap-passwd [-?|--help|-s|-u] [name]

DESCRIPTION

       smbldap-passwd changes passwords for user accounts. A normal user may only change the
       password for their own account, the super user may change the password for any account.

       If option -s specified then changed only samba password.  If options -u specified then
       changed only UNIX password.  With no options then changed both - UNIX and samba passwords.

       Password Changes The user is first prompted for their old password, if one is present.
       This password is then tested against the stored password by binding to the server. The
       user has only one chance to enter the correct passwword. The super user is permitted to
       bypass this step so that forgotten passwords may be changed.  The user is then prompted
       for a replacement password. As a general guideline, passwords should consist of 6 to 8
       characters including one or more from each of following sets:

       Lower case alphabetics

       Upper case alphabetics

       Digits 0 thru 9

       Punctuation marks

       Password will prompt again and compare the second entry against the first. Both entries
       are require to match in order for the password to be changed.
