weird behavior

I'm trying to enable CIFS on my side and after I add the following line to /etc/pam.conf

"other password required nowarn"

I got the following error when I reset the password of the smb user
root@hp:~# passwd ali

Please try again

Please try again
Permission denied

If I remove the line from /etc/pam.conf, the above command is recovered to response properly.

Is there anything I missed?

Thanks in advance for the help
