Sorry, I still have ldap + samba pdc + pam.d problems

Asked by Massimo Forti on 2007-04-17

Sorry, I have not still understood how works this site, sorry, before I click on the wrong button, now I hope to have understood.
I open one new post and bringing back my answer to Kevin Kubasik:

I know the tool authtool, but I do not succeed to install it on Ubuntu
6,10 serveur edition. I have read also the ActiveDirectoryHowto
document, but shaping the files common-account, common-auth, common-
password and common-session as described in this document, the demon
dbus does not work. In the net I have found of post in which users
advised to modify the files in /etc/dbus-1/system.d, I try to modify
hal.conf and networkmanager.conf for the notebooks that uses the wi-fi.
but I'm not successful to resolve it. Hour I have the following
configuration of files:

account sufficient
account required

auth sufficient nullok_secure
auth requisite use_first_pass
auth optional migrate

password sufficient nullok obscure min=4 max=8 md5
password requisite
password optional nullok try_first_pass use_authtok

session required readenv=1
session required
session optional
session required skel=/etc/skel/ umask=077
session optional

I have found this configuration on the net, it works fine, but I don't have all I want, infact if is possible I want to be able to change the passowrd of users using the gui tool in ubuntu desktop. Tody I have asked to do it to the users, but I have obtained to change the password only on the LDAP server, but not on the local machines.
I don't understand.

Thanks for any aid and sorry for my errors
