It would be a smart thing to do, but I had problems with it last time I
tried. It seems that it would randomly stop authenticating people beyond
a certain point in the file. I didn't get a chance to try this again.
In any case, HP will not support tdbsam (I'm using CIFS/9000, but this
question was relevant to Samba in any case) as the recommendation from
Samba Team is not to use it for over 250 users. Oddly enough, they did
not say that they wouldn't support smbpasswd.
In any case, I'm hoping that a serious trim on that file will give me
the breathing room I need to look at LDAP.
