[Samba] Upgrading from Samba 3.07 to 3.010 on different box

K, here is my situation. I have 2 servers. The original which is running 
3.07 on one server. It has been running for some time and is our PDC. I have 
another server that I have installed Samba 3.010. This will be the PDC and 
the other box will be taken out of commission. I moved over all the data and 
accounts. Got Samba up and running with the same config. Downed the original 
server and brought this server up. My problem is, none of my XP machines 
will log into the Server. I removed an XP machine from the domain and added 
it to a workgroup, then re-added it to the domain and it worked fine. This 
is a PDC in a College environment so going around and touching every machine 
to re-add to the domain is not a solution i want to think about.

My question is, what do I have to do to avoid doing this? I was wondering if 
this has something to do with the server SSID? If so, how do I go about 
moving that? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
