I finally found the solution. I was moving from a Gentoo system to Centos 
and the layout of the files is different under Gentoo.

In the Gentoo layout, the default location for passdb.tdb, 
schannel_store.tdb and  secrets.tdb is in /var/lib/samba/private .

When I first tried to import, I had got an error message about secrets.tdb 
not being found, so I had made a link /var/lib/samba/secrets.tdb that 
pointed to /var/lib/samba/private/secrets.tdb, but, crucially, I did not 
do this for the other files in the secrets subdirectory.

Once I made the links for the other files, all I had to do was clean up my 
old tdb files (duplicate and otherwise bad entries) and then the import
