Changing Samba Passwords
To change your samba password (after your samba account has been created), do the following:
$ smbpasswd -r samba Old SMB password: New SMB password: Retype new SMB password: Password changed for user <USERNAME>

In the case that a user has forgotten their samba password, their password can be reset by logging into phpLDAPAdmin and changing the values of sambaLMPassword and sambaNTPassword to a known value.
