Thank you for your answer.
I actually did not point out exactly enough what i want to do, sorry  
for that ...

I read these postings and also some sections in the samba howto and  
several descriptions on the net, but i understand all these in that  
way, that the samba server is reconfigured to use ldap and "stays"  
there. at the moment we are some time away from finally migrating all  
samba accounts, which are currently stored in smbpasswd, to ldap and  
it is no option to take down and reconfigure samba even for a short  
so what i in fact need is a way to get a snapshot of the current  
accounts and copy them into ldap, the samba server should/can/must not  
be touched (i mean start/stop/reconfigure etc.) in any way during this  
can this be done ?

thanks in advance for any hints!
