I am in the procress of trying to upgrade a DC from a packaged
"4.7.6-Ubuntu" to a self-compiled 4.14.6.
I copied a self-compiled version of Samba over to /usr/local/samba, and
copied the config files, databases (private folder etc) from their
typical debian locations too.
When I try to start the new samba with debug level 10, the syslog says:
Jul 31 16:02:43 ad1 samba: [2021/07/31 16:02:43.347737, 0,
pid=3001, effective(0, 0), real(0, 0)]
Jul 31 16:02:43 ad1 samba: samba version 4.14.6 started.

Samba failed to prime database, error code 22
I've seen this error documented on a downgrade, not an upgrade (see
* Should this work or should I give up and go for a scary DC rejoin?
* If this should work, how can I find out more about what's going wrong?
Let me know if I should provide config files, (what) logs, etc.
