my problem is the following:
i am trying to replace an old SUSE 8.2, Samba 2.2
domain controller with a SUSE 9.3 system with samba
3.0 as PDC.
Everything works fine, i can join the new domain, i
replaced the machine and domain sid from the new
server with the old ones. 

But how can  reuse the profiles from the old machine
at the new one? 
If i make a simple remote copy, the settings of the
users are lost, i miss my german keyboard layout and
so on. 
I think that this is a problem regarding the sids of
the users. How can i find out the sids from the old
machine and how can i replace the new ones with the
old ones on the new server?
I tried to do it with " pdbedit -u username -G oldSID"
(i retrieved the old SID from the logs, but i don't
know how to generally get it), but it obviously isn't
changed, because "pdbedit -Lv username" still shows
the old SID.

Thanks for your answers...
