How can I maintain users old NT RIDs while migrating to Samba PDC when they
start from 1000. The RID to UID conversion algorithm is RID = 2 * UID + 1000
so the user with RID of 1000 would be root (0 * 2 + 1000 = 1000) on Unix.
Maintaining the old RIDs is essential for migrating on-the-fly, because
re-adding hundreds of computers to domain and losing local user profiles is
not an option.

Any help with this is appreciated!
