Any comment that claims something is easy, or simple or obvious is fine,.... as long as it is followed by the actual instructions and explanations to complete the task.
Editing a .conf file is exactly one of those tasks where detailed instructions are required. KitchM 00:52, 28 September 2009 (EDT)
Major enhancements in Samba 3.4.0 include:
Configuration changes: The default passdb backend has been changed to 'tdbsam'!
The default passdb backend has been changed to 'tdbsam'! That breaks existing setups using the 'smbpasswd' backend without explicit declaration!
Please use 'passdb backend = smbpasswd' if you would like to stick to the 'smbpasswd' backend or convert your smbpasswd entries using e.g. 'pdbedit -i smbpasswd -e tdbsam'.
