We did a lot of work with Ricky on his transition, and the biggest point
that remained is that we do not warn if we do not find the groups
locally when we attempt the upgrade. 

That is, groups in Samba3 are defined by posix or the setting
'ldapsam:trusted'.  If a migration is done by first transferring the
Samba data between hosts, the groups also need to be transferred such
that Samba3 would be able to operate.
