Description Ed Asbury 2004-09-08 17:17:34 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3)

Description of problem:
When the conversion of the passdb.tdb password database happens on
upgrade of samba 3.0.4 to 3.0.6, the UWX flags are not carried across
to the new database.  This results in the machines not being able to
login to the domain, however, surprisingly the users still can log in
even though a pdbedit -Lv of the users account shows [           ] in
the Account Flags:.  To partially work around this problem, I had to
delete and recreate all of the machine accounts in the domain and then
rejoin them to the domain.  This still does not take care of the user
account problem.  User Manager for Windows shows absolutely no user
accounts for the domain.  If a new user is created, then that user
shows up under User Manager for Windows and shows in pdbedit with the
proper [UX        ] flags under the Account Flags: field.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Samba 3.0.6-2.3E

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade from Samba 3.0.4 to 3.0.6

Actual Results:  tdb password database corrupted

Expected Results:  Account flags should be imported to new database
format correctly

You should report this at bugzilla.samba.org, where the folks who 
write samba will be able to debug this faster than I can.  I've seen 
some discussion of problems with 3.0.6 upgrades on the mailing 
lists, but no resolution.  They may be seeing the same problem you 
are, so your analysis may help the Samba folks figure out what's 
going on.
