Quoting Fabio Muzzi (debianbugs at kurgan.org):
> Package: samba
> Version: 2:3.2.5-4
> Severity: important
> I am setting up a PDC with Lenny, and i have tried to run a "net rpc vampire" against a NT4 PDC. The vampire process seems to fail to get machine account passwords, even if it gets the machine accounts themselves (the entries get created properly in /etc/passwd and in samba auth database).
> The result is that if I want to make the clients connect to the domain after switching to the new DC (Samba) I have to rejoin every client to the domain, which is impossibile since we have more than 150 clients here.
> I have searched for this bug, and found something on the Samba list (the url of a copy of the messages is here: http://www.nabble.com/net-rpc-vampire-in-release-3.2.x-td19180372.html) even if it is not clear about which version they are talking about.
> I have searched for the bug on the Samba bug tracking system, but I came up with only this: https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5722. The problem seems to be the same, but no solution.
OK, recording this...
> This bug makes it impossibile to use the "net rpc vampire" command at all.

Another test could be trying packages from unstable. They might
however be harder to install because of their dependency chain (on PAM
