  I am trying to set up Samba as a PDC on our network and having some 
difficulty.  I established a trusted machine account and added it to the 
domain.  Samba will however not release the SIDs needed by our servers 
working off of it.  I get the following message when trying to do a gpresult 
[microsoft resource kit]

LookupAccountSid failed with 1789

I did a grep through samba 2.2.8b and samba 3.0.0b3 sources and couldn't 
even pull up that 'AccountSid' command.  Is this not supported at all?  Will 
I be forced to enter the depths of Windows as a PDC?

It doesn't seem too complicated to release the SIDs to trusted machines 
[such as the one which does our user map services]... isn't that what I'm 
trying to do here?
