Maybe I was not clear enough. I am not looking for a tool to just change an 
LDAP password (I use ldappasswd for that currently, and it changes Samba 
passwords too via the smbk5passwd overlay) or provision accounts to LDAP 
etc. . I am looking for a solution to ensure that, whichever mechanisms I

aspects related to the use of that password are updated consistently, for use 
via simple binds, authentication via Samba/NTLM/MSCHAPv2, and Kerberos. At 
present I see no means to accomplish this (at most you can get 2/3).

pwdutils seems mostly to be similar in function to what I am currently using
