Thank you very much for your answer. 

It's the default, internal backend. (smbpasswd) 

a) If I do : 

tdbdump schannel_store.tdb dump | grep BWPC |grep SECRET | wc 

I get 95 machines (this number looks good). 

b) smbpasswd is a text file that looks good. 

c) I can also do "tdbdump secrets.tdb dump" 

Thanks a lot in advance for any advice,

The problem is that I need to get their SID to be able to migrate to a new server... TECHNICAL DETAILS : * Samba 3.3.10 * Number of machines : * Unix : 128 machines * pdbedit -Lv | grep "Unix" | grep "$" | wc : * 13 machines only * Number of users : * Unix : 79 domain users * pdbedit -Lv | grep "Unix" | grep -v "$" | wc : * 52 users only ! To be honest I don't absolutely need pdbedit to work, if I can list the SID of all users by some other mean, it will be OK. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Denis P. S. I saw somewhere that it could be due to missing Unix users, but these users are not missing.
