I'm trying Samba 4.1.17 (Debian Jessie packages) classic update process
with previous LDAP backend. The process goes normal, occasional "group
already exists" etc.

But it ends up with an error:

ERROR(<type 'exceptions.ValueError'>): uncaught exception - unable to
parse dn string
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/samba/netcmd/__init__.py", line
175, in _run
    return self.run(*args, **kwargs)

    m.dn = ldb.Dn(samdb, "CN=%s,CN=Users,%s" % (groupmap.nt_name,

Does someone have a clue, please?
