Re: Password conversion to lmpassword ntpassword

The best that we could think of (though we haven't yet implemented it -- we're hoping to do so soon) is to create a password-changing mechanism (webpage) that will reset all three (when the user enters the valid userPassword). Then anyone who wants/needs to use samba shares/authentication will have to go reset their password.

No, if there would be such a way then there would be no need for the
lmpassword and ntpassword attributes :)
