This is not a realistic use case. smbk5pwd was written starting in 2004; 
pam_ldap started supporting LDAP password policy long before then. Anyone 
running LDAP clients (pam_ldap, nss_ldap) older than that has far worse 
problems to worry about.

Yes, in the meantime both Heimdal and Samba use the smbPwdLastSet attribute 
which is already taken care of.

This ITS will be closed.
