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... :-)
