I am migrating from an NT4 PDC to Samba 3.025a. I used the "net rpc
vampire" command to transfer the user and machine accounts. Almost all
accounts have a lower case Unix user name, except for the administator
account. Unix is case sensitive, Windows doesn't seem to care.
# pdbedit -v administrator
Unix username: Administrator
NT username: Administrator
I was unable to login on Windows. I was unable to change the "Unix
username" field with pdbedit (maybe not even possible?) so I change it under
unix. I would have rather changed it under Windows to avoid possible
problems under unix later if someone forgets that one account is is not all
I am using tdbsam as the samba backend.
How can I change the "Unix username" or other fields not explicitly covered
in the man page?
