For the administrator, because it is a default AD account, we do not
import it, but instead we simply bring across the password (only). That
means we will not bring across the 'password does not expire' flag, but
the password should be valid for as long as the expiry. What expiry
time did you have in your old domain?

The issue here is that Samba4 simply can't see them. What version of
Samba 3.x are you upgrading from?
What do the groups look like in the directory?
This is a recurring issue, and a large number of people have difficulty
upgrading LDAP groups for some reason. We may need to find another way
to read the group list (we can bind directly to LDAP, rather than via
the samba3 passdb code if need be).

Not at this stage.

I'm sorry, I've not looked into our wins stuff in a long time.

Samba attempts replication to all DCs at the moment, as I understand it.
Thanks for getting back to me. We will do our best to get to the bottom
of the remaining issues you face, particularly around group membership.
