2 questions :)

all my samba pdc are done with fedora-ds backend; do you think it is
wortwhile to try to run your utility against an ldif export of
or it will fail for sure?

if during provisioning i use:
where SID is the SID of current domain, and then using your utility i
import users and computers and groups, more or less I could migrate my
samba3 domains trasparently to windows client?

i cc the list, maybe someone other is interested on this issue (all
who manage samba3 pdc, i suppose..)
