Hey all,

Looking to upgrade from Samba 3.0.11 to HP CIFS/9000 2.03 (which is
basically a patched Samba 3.0.22) on HP-UX 11i. Looking at
simultaneously moving from smbpasswd as my passdb backed to tdbsam.
Looks pretty idiot proof, and I think I should have very little trouble.
However, here is one slight problem that I'm running into so far:

# /products/samba/bin/pdbedit -e tdbsam:/etc/samba/private/passdb.tdb
TDBSAM version too old (0), trying to convert it.
TDBSAM converted successfully.
Unable to modify TDB passwd ! Error: Record exists
 occured while storing the RID index (RID_000025f4)

...what is this Unable to modify TDB passwd business? It would appear to
me as if, perhaps, there is some sort of duplication in the file
somehow, but I have no idea where to start looking -- it's a big file
and it would be pretty hard to pick out a duplicate if I can't get any
information from that RID_0000025f4 or something else.

Thanks for any time spent on helping me with this problem!
