Dear Chris,

In the migration --> classicupgrade

Will check on tdb for the user password SID and etc and move it over to the
new  AD format.
So you must have this tdb files (normally under /var/lib/samba/private)

Move to your test server or a test dir...

If this files is not found...

Nothing can be migrated...
