Exclamation smbpasswd errors prevent changing passwords

This is really hot.

I manage a lab of 25 dual boot computers in the school where I teach, running fedora and (cough) win2k. Last year all went very well for the Windows users in my lab, but this year every time the users attempt to change their samba passwords using smbpasswd they get this error message:

---- console dialog for a user trying to change their samba password will logged on to the server -----

[aford@stretch aford]$ smbpasswd
Old SMB password:
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
machine 127.0.0.1 rejected the session setup. Error was :
NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE.
Failed to change password for aford
[aford@stretch aford]$

----- end of dialog ---------

Any help would be greatly appreciated, since the other teacher using the lab is unable to teach... OUCH!

what version are you using, the outdated version shiped with fc2 should be upgraded to the latest 3.0.6 release, this may not solve your problem, but the 3.0.5 version did include some passwrod changing bugs.

How is samba setup? Are you on the server? Are you using OpenLDAP? Post smb.conf.

The server is running RH 9.0 and hasn't had any updates since RH 9.0 was obsoleted. I'll get to work installing and configuring yum asap.

The same error happens on the server and from any of the clients. It doesn't happen if I'm logged in as root on the server or by ssh'ing from a client.
