    Migrating samba from Ubuntu 8 to Ubuntu 9

    I wonder where shall I ask this. But, I think I'm gonna start here
    Well, few days ago i set up a system with the Ubuntu 9.04 which I have downloaded and installed Samba to.
    I actually tried to clone the Samba file server from Ubuntu 8.04 that has Samba 3.0.28 to the new platform here.
    New Samba, New OS.
    Use Old Samba configurations
    old, unix group, old unix users, old samba passwords
    That was what I tried to accomplished
    Can't really finish up everything smoothly..
    Any guide for it already?
    It seems like I "HAD" unix user but no unix password in my OLD system
    The unix are stored in smbpasswd only
    Any idea?Tools? SWAT?

    Re: Migrating samba from Ubuntu 8 to Ubuntu 9

    I would like to know, what changes would have possibly affect my upgrade here.
    What could have possible gone wrong
    First try was to copy smbpasswd,smbusers(empty),smb.conf, passwd(in /etc),groups(in /etc) , performed pwcon and grpconv
    It works fine. But I can't change any password
    And, it seems like I can't sync unix and samba users using Webmin
    I'm using webmin 1.480
    I tried to change using Webmin at "System>Change Passwords"
    It results Password changed successfully but it never really did.
    So that confuses me.
    Found that my Samba user list is shown as empty..
    So I tried to convert Unix users to Samba users
    Errors I get,
    Code:
    add_smbfilepwd_entry: entry with name nobody already exists
    Something like that.
    Sorry for the mess here

    it appears that the samba 3.4.0 caused my error here..
    samba 3.4.0 uses tdbsam and has smbpasswd disabled somehow?
    testing it again
