When you say "migrate", do you mean an ordinary upgrade on the one
server, or are you changing servers and copying the settings across?

I was having this problem migrating to 3.4.7 using tdbsam backend; it
went away after I rewrote the script that migrated the TDB files to the
new server. See thread "Undocumented TDB files" for more on the TDB

Earlier someone posted that a problem like this was fixed for them "by
changing workstation/server names in passwd and group to uppercase".
