What do you need the Unix password for?
If you make your windows users to be also Unix users, then the windows
password is also the Unix password.

Hello,

I have a Samba AD and use RSAT to manage Users how can I set unix password?
Should I use samba-tool for that?

I need the unix password for mail. the user should not be able to change
this, if win* password is changed.

In the wiki i have read that you should not mix RSAT and samba-tool
management, thats why i ask.

is there a way to set a unix password after a domain user is created?

Most Linux mailservers should be able to authenticate with the AD
password, but I suppose you could use the Unix password.

Where does it say this ?

I think you are going to have to write your own script around
ldbmodify/ldapmodify and the unixUserPassword attribute
