[Samba] do I need to rejoin machines to the domain?

Due to a stupid human mistake we had some UIDs in the passwd and
smbpasswd which were identical for users and machines, i.e. the user
peter had the UID 1044 and the machine cyclone had the UID 1044. We
configured samba as a PDC, therefore, nobody could log in anymore. I
fixed the UIDs in the passwd by changing the machines' UIDs, then I
deleted the machine's entries in smbpasswd and added them again to
the smbpasswd. The problem now is that login to the domain does not
work any more. My question is: do we need to rejoin the machines to
the domain due to these changes in the smbpasswd?
Thanks for any hints.
P.S.: samba 2.2.3a on Solaris; Win2k-, WinNT-clients
