I migrate an NT4 domain a few week ago without problems.
But it was a small domain and the passdb backend was tdb, not ldap.
However, following the samba howto, I found one step missing in chapter
36, procedure 36.1: maybe your domain SID doesn't match the NT4's one.
Before "net rpc vampire", try to fetch the domain SID with "net rpc
getsid", and then vampire users.
Just my 2 cents... :-)
