[Samba] NT PDC to Samba PDC migratio

	I thought that it was quite impossible to do that due to the Domain SID   
as well as the SAM list that currently Samba is unable to retrieve. (Not   
that it would have helped me any, since our old NT 4.0 PDC took a major   
Hardware failure.)

	How would one duplicate the SID, is that possible with 'smbpasswd -S'   
from the new Samba DC?

Yes, search the archives for the procedure I posted on Nov 25 or

The only "problem" as such is that if you need to keep the PDC around,
you have to disable the netlogon service on it to stop it trying to
become the PDC again. That or rebuild it from scratch as a regular
server (non-DC).
