Replying on list so others may help or benefit...


It's been a while since I've done one of these migrations, but here's a 
couple of things to try:

- Make sure the clients' primary DNS server is an Active Directory 
Integrated DNS (in a single-DC environment, the DNS is usually the same 
machine as the W2K3 domain controller)

- In the clients' Advanced TCP/IP parameters, make sure that the "DNS 
Suffix for this connection" is BLANK

- From a workstation, make sure you can log into the SAMBA domain with 
the username "Administrator", AND THAT you have administrative rights to 
all domain and local resources with that login.

- Turn on auditing in the destination domain. This can be done with the 
domain group policy editor.

- Read the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 322970 -- 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322970 -- "How to Troubleshoot 
Inter-Forest sIDHistory Migration with ADMTv2"

Hope this helps.
