I am attempting to move my running Samba server from an old, inadequate
machine, to one that is better suited to handle the load. Our office is
very small, only 8 people, and the configuration is simple. I am running
Samba 3.0.23c on the old server and 3.0.23d on the new. I am using the
tdbsam for the backend.
Basically I copied the entire /etc/samba directory from the old to the new
server and used rsync to keep the users directories up to date with each
The problem is, on the new machine, if I look at a users information using
pdbedit -Lv <username> I see that the Kickoff time and Password Must Change
fields are both set to Wed, 31 Dec 1969 16:59:59 MST. This results in the
users account being "expired" and of course they cannot log in. I can
change the Password Must change field easily enough, but I cannot find any
reference to Kickoff Time that does not also talk about LDAP in the
documentation, on this list or even via Google.
I don't have the time, nor frankly the inclination, to try and set up an
LDAP server at the moment.
Is there some way to change the Kickoff Time? Or is there a different
technique I should follow to migrate servers?
