"net getlocalsid" will return a SID assoziated with your $"netbios name"
parameter. Whenever you change your $"workgroup name" in smb.conf, samba
will generate a new sambaDomain enty in LDAP (granted you have
sufficient rights for adding the entry) whose SID will match the one
from $"netbios name". "net getlocalsid" takes $"workgroup name" as an
optional parameter so you can check if your SIDs match. If they match,
everything SHOULD work.


PS: I say SHOULD, because the above is derived from fooling around with
samba, not reading the source.
