However, as a warning to others - this can happen. There was an issue
(and it still happens for domain members, for their 'local' users) where
if you rename a Samba machine, it can regenerate the local SAM sid. On
a PDC, this is also the domain SID.
In current versions of Samba (3.0.1 or 3.0.2 I think) we make sure that
the 'domain' sid takes precedence, otherwise this really can happen, and
you need to get/set the domain sid.
net getlocalsid OLDNETBIOSNAME
net setlocalsid S-.....
should do the job, for 3.0. It also happens in Samba 2.2, but we don't
have 'net' there, and it's harder to fix. I think there are details in
