Hi all,

is it possible for Samba 2.2.5 to use the RIDs out of LDAP instead
calculating them?

I am trying to migrate a W2K workstation from a W2K PDC to a Samba 2.2.5
PDC without re-joining the Domain.

I have given the Domain SID, the W2K PDC netbios name and the Domain name
to the Samba PDC.

Then I have created the account for the W2K workstation in the
LDAP-directory with the password and the RID of the maschine from the old
(W2K) PDC.

After stopping the W2K PDC and starting the Samba PDC, I am not able to
log on with the W2K workstation. The rpcclient tolds me that the RID of
that maschine is calculated by the known formula...and not taken from

Any chance here without 3.0?
