Short answer is no....you can't simply copy...but you can use the same
list that you used to generate the usernames and passwords on the
Samba/LDAP server to do the same on the SME server.  You may have to
manipulate the data a little, but it's a matter of reorganizing that's
all.  Use the batch users file from here

follow the directions in the README
