[Samba] danger in using pdbedit

I would like to be able to change between backends but I'm worried that
my users will encounter trouble loggin in.  So I'm looking for
reassurance that my command is ok.

My current configuration is:

   passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap:// smbpasswd guest

I would like to change from ldap to tdbsam.  Is this the command to

# pdbedit -i ldapsam:ldap:// -e tdbsam

I would then change my configuration to:

   passdb backend = tdbsam

And then test my logins and share access.

Thanks for any comments.
