I originally migrated to AIX 5.2 by recompiling samba 2.2.8a and just
running it without changing any of the samba config or data files.
There was no need to rejoin.
I don't know if it's too late for that, but potentially you could
restore a backup of the samba install/private directory from before you
tried to join and it should just work unless the machine password has
already been changed.
Other than that, once or twice my AIX samba got out of sync with the
domain controller. I found I had to delete the old account on the PDC
before attempting to create a new one from the command line. But don't
do that until the backup fails to work.
myaccount would need to be a domain admin.
