You can migrate user over with the 'unix password sync' Samba
unix password sync (G)
This boolean parameter controlls whether Samba attempts to
synchronise the UNIX password with the SMB password when
the encrypted SMB password in the smbpasswd file is
changed. If this is set to true the 'passwd program' pro-
gram is called *AS ROOT* - to allow the new UNIX password
to be set without access to the old UNIX password (as the
SMB password has change code has no access to the old
password cleartext, only the new). By default this is set
See also 'passwd program', 'passwd chat'
unix password sync = False
unix password sync = True
After everyone has migrated, you can turn it off and use smbpasswd only
from then on out.
