[Samba] Standalone Server User Import / Export

when using Samba [4.5.16-Debian] as standalone server in Windows
environment to allow certain users to access shares, we are currently
using the default tdbsam backend with a bunch of users.
We now want to migrate the users from one standalone server to a
replacement server. To migrate the users I expected to able to export
the users (incl. passwords) into a file on one server, copy the file
over to the new server and import the users there. Specifically I
old: pdbedit -e tdbsam:/root/samba.user.tdbexp
new: pdbedit -I tdbsam:/root/samba.user.tdbexp
would do the trick. A file is created during the export. The import
does not complain and has a return value indicating success. But
pdbedit -L (-v) does not list any of the imported users.
I've been trying to locate documentation how to cleanly administrate a
standalone server but haven't found much more than:
Is there any further documentation?
