This is a discussion on Re: [Samba] changing passwords from Windows XP Pro workstations - Samba ; I'm wondering about the pros and cons of simplifying the default chat - maybe something like: *password* %n\n *password* %n\n *success* This should work on my system as well.

I'm wondering about the pros and cons of simplifying the default chat -
maybe something like:
*password* %n\n *password* %n\n *success*
This should work on my system as well. I'm not sure about the system
from the "Example 3.4. 130 User Network with tdbsam [globals] Section",
since the final "success" condition may or may not report "success"
after the password is reported changed.
Anyway, a simpler default dialogue would make the chat more immune to
differences between systems, so things like "retype" versus "re-enter"
wouldn't come into play.
