Hi all,

I figured out if If I added the following line to the top of

 password sufficient

Then I would get the change password chat on ltsp clients after
forcing users to "change password at next log in" via AD. Of course I
backed up my /etc/pam.d/common-password file before I did this, and
made sure I had a couple of terminal windows open as well.

I hope this helps someone else.
