If you were using smbpasswd as the passdb backend, note that the default changed to tdbsam in version 3.4.0.
To continue to use smbpasswd, you would have to declare it in smb.conf.
    passdb backend = smbpasswd.

Since there are about a hundred workstations (and more accounts), I'd like
to make this a more seamless transition... any tips for a newb?
You could also export your existing smbpasswd to tdbsam.

       Account Import/Export

The |pdbedit| tool allows import/export of authentication (account) databases from one backend to another. For example, to import/export accounts from an old |smbpasswd| database to a /|tdbsam|/ backend:


     |root# |*|pdbedit -i smbpasswd -e tdbsam|*


     Replace the /|smbpasswd|/ with /|tdbsam|/ in the /|passdb
     backend|/ configuration in |smb.conf|.
