Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: samba
Samba's mksmbpasswd, called from samba postinst, should not create
accounts if the passwd or shadow line of /etc/nsswitch.conf contains
"ldap" (or in that case, anything other than "compat" or "files")
It tried creating hundreds of user accounts that were from LDAP.
If nsswitch.conf is using LDAP, there is a VERY HIGH CHANCE that Samba
will be using LDAP as well, and therefore smbpasswd is unnecessary.
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 8.10
