[Samba] User Migration question

I would like to migrate my user-accounts from a Samba 2 to a Samba 3

Old Setup:

Samba 2 with PAM support. PAM uses LDAP to store PosixAccounts

New Setup:

Samba 3 with "native" LDAP. PosixAccounts are already migrated to my new
LDAP server.

I tried pdbedit with my old smbpasswd file:

# pdbedit -i smbpasswd:./smbpasswd
build_sam_account: smbpasswd database is corrupt!  username jwitte with
uid 1000 is not in unix passwd database!


# getent passwd|grep jwitte
jwitte:x:1000:1000:Jochen Witte:/home/jwitte:/bin/bash

Any hints?
