[Samba] Converting smbpasswd from Samba-2.0 to Samba-2.2 ?

I have a smbpasswd file from a Samba-2.0.x, generated with pwdump2 [1] . I'm in
a NT-PDC to Samba-PDC migration. The documentation says that it generates
Samba-2.0 style smbpasswd file [2]. But I would like to use the smbpasswd  on
a Samba-2.2.x machine.

I've read that smbpasswd format changed . Is there a tool to convert smbpasswd
from 2.0 to 2.2 ? I cannot find one. Any URL or HOWTO will be greatly

Thanks in advance.
