Hi all,

I am using OpenLDAP and over have ~800 users in its DB.

I would like to simply use Samba as a file server, no PDC.

I have been able to export my LDAP DB to a file containing hashes of users passwords.

Is there a way I can import this file to smbpasswd or other file that Samba understands so that my 800 some odd users won't have to re register there passwords?

I would really love to avoid having 800 annoyed users retyping there passwords for accessing shares.

I have them currently authenticating on Windows via an LDAP client (pGina).
