[Samba] using the old user profiles for the new PDC

Make sure the SID on your new PDC is the same as the SID on your old PDC. SIDs are used to encode passwords, determine file and directory permissions... If the SID changes, roaming profiles stop working.

"man net" for more info (see "net getlocalsid" and "net setlocalsid" specifically).

A few days ago PDC crashed and I setup a new PDC with the same domain name.
I have recreated the user accounts but when the users login, windows xp
clients create a new profile. Is there a way to make the windows clients use
the old profiles?
