[Samba] Samba 2.2 to Samba 3.0 migration - LDAP backend

Hi list,

I am having some issues migrating a Samba 2.2 installation to Samba 
3.0. I am using the LDAP backend and converted the LDAP database to the 
new schema using the provided convertSambaAccount script. As far as I 
can tell that worked fine. The new ldif file has everything in it. 
Populating the LDAP database with the converted ldif file works ok as 
well. However, when I try to login to the domain using a windows box 
the sambaNTpassword and sambaLMpassword attributes are deleted from the 
directory and I get an error. The same happens when I access Samba via 
smbclient -U administrator -L IP. Prior to that the attributes do exist.

After using smbpasswd to set the password again everything works as 
expected. Any ideas what is causing this behaviour or if I made a 
mistake while migrating the database ?

Thanks in advance
