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?
