I tried beta8 (and 4.0.0beta9-GIT-05f9829). But now it crashes because of the 
user 'administrator':

Importing users
ERROR(<class 'samba.provision.ProvisioningError'>): uncaught exception - 
ProvisioningError: User 'Administrator' in your existing directory does not 
have SID ending in -500
line 160, in _run
     return*args, **kwargs)
"/usr/local/samba/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/samba/netcmd/", line 
1013, in run
     useeadb=eadb, dns_backend=dns_backend, use_ntvfs=use_ntvfs)
   File "/usr/local/samba/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/samba/", 
line 872, in upgrade_from_samba3
     raise ProvisioningError("User 'Administrator' in your existing directory 
does not have SID ending in -500")

It also fails, when I change the accounts SID so that it ends in -500 and the 
same when I completely delete the 'administrator' account from my old LDAP.

Any other idea for a workaround?
