ok, I was thinking that to change the SID on the PDC or on the Windows PCs 
is possible, or I am wrong? Perhaps is not just a matter of having the 
same SID?  Even I haven't found a way to migrate a windows profile using 
some windows utility from one domain to other.  I wonder what is used when 
you have to migrate one hundred or one thousand users?  The other day I 
found one commercial extra non windows software (I tried a demo and it 
couldn't detect my PDC, that it costed around 2 USD per windows client).

thank you, I'm gonna read the docs in more detail

ok, your help is the help that the openldap administrator should have 
given me, that is too bad for the openldap advocacy, isn't it?

thanks for all,
