MACHINE.SID - what if I delete it

I'm doing all sorts of testing with samba 2.0.6 and NT wks domain
logons. It is just a test environment, and since deleting and recreating
the /etc/MACHINE.SID file nothing is working.

If a person deletes that file, what has to be done to get NT wks domain
logons to work again?

Delete and recreate the machine names in passwd and smbpasswd?

Delete and recreate the NT usernames in passwd and smbpasswd?

Anything need to be done on the NT wks machines?

TIA - Eric
