How do I sync passwords between Samba and Solaris?

Hi, everyone.

I have recently installed Samba version 3.0.23d on my Solaris 10 box. I am attempting to sync Samba's passwords with the UNIX passwords on the system. I read about using a pam module that is included with the samba tar called The instructions say to issue the make command to create the module but no such file is ever created.

Is anyone familiar with this module? Is there a better alternative to syncing passwords between Samba and Solaris?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

ndrdump - DCE/RPC Packet Parser and Dumper SYNOPSIS
ndrdump [-c context] {pipe} {function} {in|out} {filename} ndrdump [pipe] ndrdump DESCRIPTION
ndrdump tries to parse the specified filename using Samba's parser for the specified pipe and function. The third argument should be either in or out, depending on whether the data should be parsed as a request or a reply. Running ndrdump without arguments will list the pipes for which parsers are available. Running ndrdump with one argument will list the functions that Samba can parse for the specified pipe. The primary function of ndrdump is debugging Samba's internal DCE/RPC parsing functions. The file being parsed is usually one exported by wiresharks "Export selected packet bytes" function. The context argument can be used to load context data from the request packet when parsing reply packets (such as array lengths). VERSION
This man page is correct for version 4.0 of the Samba suite. SEE ALSO
wireshark, pidl AUTHOR
This utility is part of the Samba[1] suite, which is developed by the global Samba Team[2]. ndrdump was written by Andrew Tridgell. This manpage was written by Jelmer Vernooij. NOTES
