Default Samba + LDAP enforcing a password policy

Hey everyone,

I followed the openldap-samba-domain-controller guide that was just posted recently and now have a fully functional test server setup.

I was hoping to somehow setup and enforce a strong security policy and I am kinda confused on where I should begin and what to configure :S

My Password Policy Goals
------------------------
8 characters in length
no dictionary based words
password history of 3
passwords must be changed monthly

Now, would this be achievable by configuring PAM restrictions? Or is this configured somewhere else, possibly inside LDAP ?

Has no one had to do this in the past?

I'm sorry, but I'm no LDAP expert...
