[Samba] transfer users after samba upgrade to new server

I want to transfer all of my users from an older version of samba to a 
new one here.

The old version is 3.0.28 and the file with user passwords
is /etc/samba/smbpasswd

and the new version is 3.6.5 and there does not seem to be that file 
I think the user info is now in

My question is how to transport my users to my new system?
i.e. How to convert
/etc/samba/smbpasswd ------> /var/lib/samba/private/passdb.tdb

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
