I am almost ready to switch over from 2.2.7 to 3 but found 
that a user profile created in 2.2 doesn't work in 3-

during login to a Samba 3 server, an error occurs and profile 
modifications are not permitted or recognized.

This may seem trivial but I have 50 users, each with complex 
desktop setups which help them with there daily tasks of CG 
post production (so some of you know the primadonnas that 
this env can breed :).

Does any one know of an elegant solution to profile migration?

If not, this is what I was planning on doing;

To circumvent this, I was planning to use the Windows 
facility of copying 1 profile to another but my problem is 
getting the 2 Samba domains to co-habitate as I set up each 
Samba PDC with its own unique name (for testing and the 
company name is changing so references to the old regime are 
not desired).

How would I get a Samba 2.2.7 PDC with domain name ABC to 
trust another Samba 3.0 PDC with domain name XYZ for the 
purpose of copyinmg 1 profile to another vi Windows?
