I just hit the same situation. The solution described (with "getent -s
compat passwd") wouldn't work there because they actually have "passwd:
compat" in /etc/nsswitch.conf and a "+::::::" line in /etc/passwd. The
smbpasswd was already 2MiB large as I killed the import process.

Can you please un-automate / unbundle the "import accounts" task from
the "software installation" task? I just want to install samba, please.
Nothing more.

If I want to import remote users locally, I can do after installation.
If I want to connect samba to Active Directory, I *must* do it after
