I would like some advice on a migration strategy.  Soon I will be migrating
from a old samba 2.2 server PDC server to a new samba 3 server (on new
hardware).   I also wish to take this opportunity to rename the server which
I understand will change the SID.

What is the recommended method to achieve this without having to touch any
of the workstations?

Can I copy the old smbpasswd file to the new server and just manually
recreate all the workstation trust accounts on the new server?

Do I need to touch the user accounts?
