Users Being Added to the Wrong Backend Database

A few complaints have been received from users who just moved to Samba-3. The following smb.conf file entries were causing problems: new accounts were being added to the old smbpasswd file, not to the tdbsam passdb.tdb file:

[global]
...
passdb backend = smbpasswd, tdbsam
...

Samba will add new accounts to the first entry in the passdb backend parameter entry. If you want to update to the tdbsam, then change the entry to:

passdb backend = tdbsam, smbpasswd
