  Cannot Change Password for Active Directory Users

Status in unity-control-center package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  It seems that Active Directory users cannot change their password from
  the User Accounts module in the control center. When you look at their
  account, the 5 dots next to Password are greyed out, and you cannot
  click on them. For local users, the dots are black and you can change
  the password normally by clicking them. From a terminal, using passwd
  does work fine for Active Directory users. I am using Ubuntu 14.04,
  and sssd (1.11.5-1ubuntu3) Is this a bug, or is there maybe some sort
  of config that hides this option for remotely authenticated users?
