passdb.tdb: TDB database version 6, little-endian hash size 131 bytes
because of that format, you cannot just create it using touch and expect it to work.
In a strict sense, there are three supported account storage and access systems. One of these is considered
obsolete (smbpasswd). It is recommended to use the <code class="literal">tdbsam</code> method for all simple systems. Use
<code class="literal">ldapsam</code> for larger and more complex networks.
