[Samba] Switching Ldap Servers

I am in the final throws of migrating our ldap servers. I have been running
samba as a pdc and using the ldap as the backend for over a year, and all is well.
I was testing the samba pdc against the new ldap servers and got the following
errors in the log file for the machine attempting to connect:
net_auth2: creds_server_check failed
and the machine (xp) will not successfully connect/bind.
- I am running samba-3.0.22
- I have changed the password stored in the secrets file to match the new ldap
admin DN, but that didn't help.
- All of the ldap entries were simply migrated over from the existing ldap to
the new ldap.
- I can use smbclient and successfully get to a share.
I did see where one person was getting this error and I believe was able to
remove the machine and then rejoin the domain. Which led me to believe that
possibly a SID or some descriptor has changed when I changed the password in
the secrets file for the ldap manager DN.
I also have some standalone machines that simply map a share. Will those
continue to work? My guess was yes since the smbclient is working and this
seems to be machine bind issue.
I only have a small window each day to test and was hoping to be close to
figuring this out before my next attempt.
Any tips / suggestions?
