I've been writing one off and on for a while. I've spoken to Gerry about
it, and it's currently a plain text document itemising what you need to do.
I have tested a migration based on these instructions, and it is
transparent. I've also written a Perl script to go through the contents
of a smbpasswd file dumped from the NT SAM with pwdump, and sync the
UID's and the UID's in /etc/passwd, create new accounts where necessary,
and add all the machine accounts.
I'm now at the stage where I need to run one more test (which I was
planning on doing next week) and then add any necessary updates, convert
the documentation written thus far to DocBook, and submit it.
I'm happy to send out copies of my docs (and perl code) to any
interested parties. I was hoping to have it in a finished state before
Christmas, but I'm not sure I'll make it. It's been ongoing for months,
'cause I hardly ever get time to look at it.
