[Samba] Restoring PDC after Crash, Confused

Samba PDC system drive crashed. running 3.01. 

rebuilt system drive - kept the hostname the same, restored contents of 
/etc/samba, plus /etc/shadow, /etc/group, /etc/password

PDC isn't recognizing machines for SOME machines. Users appear fine. 

I know that I should have gotten the domain sid previously by doing 
"getlocalsid" and then restored it by doing "smbpasswd -W SID#" 

but my understanding was that you no longer had to do the backup and 
restoration of the SID in version 3.0x. Is that incorrect? What did I 
miss? Any way out of this other than restoring each machine to the domain?
