[Samba] NTLMv2 Authentication

Hello all,

I was wondering if I can get rid of the LM hashes in the password
database. We're using Samba-3.0.11 with the tdb backend on a small lab
of 30 XP clients. Since all our clients seem to support it, we are
considering migrating to NTLMv2 authentication. If I read the docs
correctly, NTLMv2 authentication uses the NTLM hash rather than the LM
one. Is there a (safe) way to strip all LM hashes from the password
database and retain/use just the NTLM ones?

thanks in advance,
