When I migrated our Samba PDC from version 2.2.7 to 3.0, I was forced to 
have the 4 machines we are using rejoin our domain, because the SID had 
Since then, users have been able to log on, but any attempt to start IE, 
or Outlook fails, apparently because something in the user's profile 
cannot be accessed due to the SID modification, and the icons in the 
WinXP start menu have disappeared for apparently the same reason.

Does anybody know if there is a way to solve this problem now, without 
recreating all the users or losing their profiles? And what should I 
have done to migrate to the new version without having to go through the 
SID modification?

Thanks everyone
