Samba 2.2.2 PDC and MS Exchange

I migrated because of a big crash on my exchange server that was also PDC.
So there eisted a domain, but since I lost my PDC, i had to migrate
everything to a new PDC. So I started the PDC (Samba) first (version 2.1a)
first and then reinstalled the exchange server on the new domain (there is
no other way, exchange server requires a domainserver). I did have some
problems with the accounts in relation to their respective mailboxes, which
I solved using some of the commandline commands of exchange (or was it
exmerge ?). Is you problem also related to this ?

Thanks for the reply.  One question:  Did you migrate an existing
NT-controlled domain and Exchange system to the samba PDC, or did you
start with samba?  The Exchange conversion is the last part of this
migration that's giving me problems at this point, and I'm wondering if
I'm missing something conceptually.
