Thanks, you were correct.  Prior to doing the migration we checked the 
locat sid and everything was fine.  Our problem was that we had an 
preload.ldif file which had the wrong sid in it.  It appears to be 
working now with users whose passwords have been changed manually on the 
Samba PDC.  We still have not found a solution as to why the passwords 
didn't migrate.
  We have also discovered another problem.  The user profiles are changed.
