sync samba pwd with aix5.3 pwd

currently, my samba login works just fine. i want my clients to use aix5.3 account to login to samba so they don't have to change samba pwd and aix pwd. i googled, and vi /usr/lib/smb.conf per some of knowledge base, but i could not get to work.

aix5.3 and samba 3.0.24.0

thanks in advace.....

SAMBA users and passwords are kept in its own file:
../private/smbpasswd
So, if you change password for AIX user, the same you have to do for SAMBA user, too.
Maybe in future Smilie
