Description Marc Muehlfeld 2014-05-30 14:58:41 UTC
Feature enhancement request:

classicupgrade for tdbsam/smbpasswd backends should read a "group" file, placed in the dbdir, for importing groups.

This idea was brought up by Andrew at the mailing list as response to the new classicupgrade HowTo: http://www.spinics.net/lists/samba/msg116094.html

Use case:

If the classicupgrade is done on a new server, the file /etc/group has not to be temporary replaced, to read groups and members, if a 'group' file could be alternatively read from the dbdir.
