Hi all!

Samba 2.x has been running for a while now but now it's time to upgrade. I 
tried everything (Google, Books, HOWTO's, etc.) but for the last month 
I've been unable to perform a succesfull migration. Maybe I try to do to 
many things at once but I cannot get the following to work:

- Move the samba domain from a 2.x server to 3.x on a different machine
- switch to a ldap backend
- change the domain name (our company name has changed)
- rename all the users from firstname to first initial + lastname

I installed and configured a 3.x server on the machine with OpenLdap as 
backend, then I tried to join the old Samba domain so I could use net 
vampire but I get the message: error setting trust account password: 

When I try net vampire I get the message: Failed to fetch Domain database:
