I want to switch off our windows nt 4.0 pdc, so i installed a linux
machine with samba3.0.0rc4. I set it up as a BDC and I was able to join
the domain. Then I did a "net rpc vampire". All accounts were added to
/etc/passwd /etc/shadow /etc/group and the smbpasswd file. But during
the command I get lots of errors like this:

[2003/09/24 13:29:55, 0] utils/net_rpc_samsync.c:fetch_account_info(494)
  Could not find unix group 4294967295 for user muennich (group
[2003/09/24 13:29:55, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:build_smb_pass(1146)
  build_sam_pass: Failing attempt to store user with non-uid based user

What does that mean, a serious problem or can it be ignored ?

Thanks a lot
