Did you compile it before running upgradeprovision?

I've just tried this now:

1.) Download samba-4.0.0alpha13.tar.gz
2.) Unpack to samba-4.0.0alpha13
3.) cd samba-4.0.0alpha13/source4
4.) ./configure
5.) make

At this point, bin/python/ldb.so is a symlink pointing at

6.) Make sure samba is not running and back everything up.
7.) sudo scripting/bin/upgradeprovision -s /usr/local/samba/etc/smb.conf

which produces the following output:

Creating a reference provision
Copy privilege
Update base samdb by searching difference with reference one
update secrets.ldb
Update machine account
Upgrade finished !
Reopenning samdb to trigger reindexing if needed after modification
Reindexing finished

That was a provision with nothing much in it, though, so your one
might produce more output.  Not sure.

Perhaps upgrading-samba4.txt should say you need to compile the code
first before running upgradeprovision?

I think the previous releases also contained the Samba 3 source code,
while the alpha 13 tarball does not.
