#37 DSGW can't change "userpassword" and "sambantpassword" fields synchronously
Closed: wontfix 2 years ago by mreynolds. Opened 9 years ago by mkosek.


Description of actual problem:

When Samba uses ldapsam backend it may be necessary to change "userpassword"
and "sambantpassword" fields synchronously. But password changing in DSGW
changes only "userpassword" field in Directory Server.

To allow this feature I've changed 2 files in the source code of DSGW:
1. I've added this definition to dsgw.h:
      #define DSGW_ATTRTYPE_SAMBANTPASSWORD   "sambaNTPassword"
2. I've changed domodify.c. Please look at the attachment.

DSGW with these modifications was tested and worked fine for Red Hat Directory
Server 8.1.0-1 and Samba 3.0.33.

If this way of solving the problem is acceptable, it might be better to build
this new feature in DSGW with more flex (allow switch it off and on through the
configuration file).

Additional info:
The modification of domodify.c is based on the code of mkntpwd tool (the work
of Anton Roeckseisen anton@genua.de) and also contains md4.c source from Samba
source code.
