You may use the smbpasswd command to change your Windows domain password.
This is useful when your Windows domain password has expired and you want
to reset your password using Samba.

where PDC is the hostname/IP address of your Windows Primary Domain Controller
To locate your PDC, run findsmb. The system listed with an asterisk is the Domain Master Browser, or PDC.
