[Samba] RPC Vamp + caps

Hi all,

Am using RPC Vampire to pull accounts from an NT4 PDC to a Linux box. 

The unit is connected as a BDC and vampire succeeds in extracting accounts on 
the NT box but only those which  match the UNIX password parameters e.g. 
lower case and staring with a letter.

Unfortunately, there are about 500 NT accounts that are witrh four digit 
numbers or are capitalised.

I used a spreadsheet to drop the usernames to lower case and put an l in from 
the numerical usernames to get them to work on Linux. 

I have generated an smbusers file mapping the nam,es across in the form:

linux name = nt name


l1000 = 1000
l1001 = ........... 
fred = FRED


but when vampire ruins it doesn't seem to see the usermap file. I have the 
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers 

in smb.conf and vampire does everything it should other than these accounts.

Any ideas please?
