if I run # net getdomainsid  is get this:

PDC (hostname home):
SID for domain HOME is: S-1-5-21-3186883984-1813041273-1898769360
SID for domain MYDOMAIN is: S-1-5-21-3186883984-1813041273-1898769360

SID for domain BDC is: S-1-5-21-1908730498-1878741769-688260909
SID for domain MYDOMAIN is: S-1-5-21-3186883984-1813041273-1898769360

Simo, are you saying that my BDC should have the SID of 
S-1-5-21-3186883984-1813041273-1898769360 ?
