[Samba] New users cannot log on, current users okay

Many thanks for your reply - the version of Samba I am using was compiled
from source, so everything is in /usr/local/samba (right?), so I assume I
need to stop Samba, copy the backed-up secrets.tdb over the top of the
one on the server at the moment and then start Samba up again?
smb.conf has remained the same, and so shouldn't need any changes.
I don't have any of the files in /usr/local/samba/var unfortunately as the
disk failed before I could copy them. Do I need any of the original files
for correct operation of the server?
