The domain SID on a Samba PDC is stored in the same directory 
as the smbpasswd file.  The filename under 2.0.x is MACHINE.SID.

You should replace or edit this with the original MACHINE.SID.
You could possible get this value on one of the client NT 
Workstations by digging through the SAM.

Are you using WINS servger?   Did you clean this out as well?
