 I am working on upgrading a old SAMBA 3.0.16 server to 3.6.1 . I am
using Openldap as my password and user back end.
The issue I have is after the upgrade users are prompted with a error
stating their password has expired.

Take this example from pbedit -v msaad

Unix username:        msaad
NT username:          msaad
Account Flags:        [UX        ]
User SID:             S-1-5-21-64374432-364290046-XXXXXXXX-2970
Primary Group SID:    S-1-5-21-3988802677-3356876598-XXXXXXXX--513
Full Name:            Mark Saad
Home Directory:       \\nycifs3\msaad
HomeDir Drive:
Logon Script:
Profile Path:         \\nycifs3\msaad\profile
Domain:               NYCIFS3
Account desc:         badluck
Munged dial:
Logon time:           0
Logoff time:          never
Kickoff time:         never
Password last set:    Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:10 GMT
Password can change:  Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:10 GMT
Password must change: never
Last bad password   : 0
Bad password count  : 0

For some odd reason under samba 3.6.1 my password last set / change
are set to Jan 1 1970 and updating my ldap password has no effect ?

Does anyone have any ideas ?
